All new hires and contractor employees begin with a safety orientation class. Written tests are administered to ensure comprehension of material and recordkeeping is maintained for future reference.
We have combined the On-the-Job Training process with a Short-Service Employee program to ensure newly hired employees are given opportunities to work with experienced co-workers and are evaluated through the OJT process.
Safety Compliance Training
All employees participate in regularly scheduled safety training courses, which are conducted throughout the year. We use one curriculum and only one training provider to ensure consistency in the content covered throughout our various facilities. Written tests are administered to ensure comprehension, and recordkeeping is always maintained.
We conduct formal safety meetings on a weekly basis, and tailgate safety meetings daily to reinforce company-wide policy.
In addition to compliance training, we train and certify all mobile equipment operators. This training is conducted by a third-party provider and consists of both classroom and practical sessions. Our courses include certification for the following equipment positions:
- Forklift operator
- Crane operator
- Dozer operator
- Excavator operator
- Backhoe operator
- Front-end Loader
- ADT (Articulating Dump Truck) operator
