Safety Program

"Every Farrior & Sons employee takes ownership of safety and the safety program. This is reflected in the 14 year record they have obtained without a lost-time incident. This represents a total of over 1,000,000 man hours. For nine of the past fourteen years there was not one recordable incident. Safety is imbedded in the Farrior & Sons' daily culture."

Safety Mission Statement: "To provide a safe working environment for all our employees, subcontractors, and visitors. To promote safety awareness and to prevent all accidents."

Company Safety Slogan: "Safety Rules are our Best Tools"

The Safety Committee consists of members from all employment levels including the company president. Safety starts at the top. This is something that we strongly believe in at Farrior & Sons. This concept has proven itself over and over again.

The safety committee meets regularly to discuss ways to improve our safety program. The primary goal is to prevent all accidents. We accomplish this through regular communication and education of all our employees. The Safety Committee reviews and updates our safety policies, completes accident investigation reviews, and works with our subcontractors to improve their safety programs as well. The importance of the right safety attitude is reinforced on a daily basis.
