The company’s Safety Plan includes orientation for new employees, general safety awareness and site specific safety training, OSHA mandated training and on-going bi-weekly “Tool Box Talks” in which managers and supervisors introduce new topics/techniques to their teams to keep safety awareness at the forefront of their work environment.
