Safety Program

“Every Farrior & Sons employee takes ownership of safety and the safety program. This is reflected in the 13 year record they have obtained without a lost-time incident. This represents a total of 950,000 man hours. For seven of the past twelve 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.

2016 Safety and Service Awards Banquet

Farrior & Sons, Inc. honored their employees on January 26, 2017, at the Farmville Community Center for its achievements in safety and years of service.

President, Bill Farrior, Jr., opened the festivities with comments on this special occasion and the company’s outstanding safety record. A delicious banquet meal followed, catered by Debra Dail of Debu Catering. The speaker for the evening was Mr. James Washington, a Safety Education Specialist with the NC Dept. of Labor. Mr. Washington presented a program on safety updates in the construction industry, insight on what NC OSHA is focusing most of their attention on, and how Farrior & Sons’ safety records compare to other companies in construction throughout the state.

Bill Farrior, Sr. made a memorable speech declaring that he would like for all the staff to continue to treat people the way Jesus would treat others. This generational attitude on the business has contributed to the company’s success, outstanding work reputation and impeccable safety achievements. Farrior & Sons has now operated for more than 13 years (over 965,000 man hours) without a lost time accident. Thirteen years is a monumental achievement for a general contractor. “Each employee is totally committed to the safety program and to watching out for their fellow workers”, Farrior remarked.
