We place substantial emphasis on safety and have decreased our experience modifier from .93 in 1992(our first year out of the pool) to .87 in 2010. All employees are issued hard hats, safety goggles and safety glasses and are expected to wear appropriate clothing. We hold safety meetings at our shop on a monthly basis; on other weeks we combine our efforts with the general contractors when possible or hold our own job site meetings. Carl Darnell is our in house Safety Officer and as a team we have implemented semi-annual certificates to employees who have not had an accident during that period. Certificates are good for restaurants or tool purchases. Annually we have individual cash bonuses for one, two or three year perfect safety records. We have in place all the required safety manuals and procedures in addition to which many of our employees have attended multiple safety classes put on by such companies as HC Beck, Vaughn Construction, Methodist Hospital & UT MD Anderson Cancer Center and the Houston Area Safety Council.
