Safety is Our Priority
Safety is Our Culture
The safety of our employees, of our subcontractors, our partners and clients is our absolute top priority. For a general contractor who self-performs work, our track record for safety performance is excellent.
Safety is about our families, our co-workers, and our communities, it encompasses so much more than the project sites we work at daily. Safety is the health of our employees, as well as the correct approach to the environment in which we work.
Our formal safety program is managed by a dedicated staff that oversees implementation of safety initiatives and continually works with field personnel to educate and enforce safety policies. Every employee receives regular safety training, in addition to ongoing training related to our unique project sites. All field supervisors are OSHA 30, CPR, and First-Aid Certified. Safety is part of each subcontract and reviewed with each subcontractor prior to awarding contracts and team members.
Measures Taken to Enhance Jobsite Safety
- Reduce risks during preconstruction by designing toward systems that are safer, prefabricated, and that reduce onsite labor.
- Isolate construction work from the general public. With every project, we establish a clear chain of command and proper communication.
- Impose and enforce internal safety programs, training and statistics.
- We recognize our teams when they excel in safety standards. We do this through awards, written recognition, hard hat medallions recognizing years of safety achievements, and GH Phipps belt buckle awards at our annual company safety event.

It’s not by one individual that we succeed in this, but a culture of care for others resulting in greatness.
