"Lead by Example"
Safety is our top priority!
The goal of KE&G’s Safety Department is to continuously reinforce our core values. We achieve this through training, observation, discussion, and planning. In addition, our safety team conducts monthly supervisor safety meetings for all supervisory personnel to review our collective performance and discuss how we can constantly improve our safety program.
When KE&G implemented a behaviorally based safety observation program, our first step was to develop a safety strategy that included identifying safety behaviors, as well as hazard recognition, and incorporate them into our company’s safety policies and procedures. This would ensure that we would take our safety performance to the next level.
This change has worked so well that our safety program and employees have been recognized by Lovitt and Touché for the last four years in a row. KE&G has received the prestigious Safety Inversion Award for 2018-2019-and 2020. In 2021, Lovitt & Touché recognized KE&G’s tremendous safety culture revision and presented KE&G with the Transformational Safety Award. We are proud to receive this recognition, as only 1 of 3 contractors to receive this award.
KE&G’s safety program includes a Safety Director, a Field Safety Manager, a Safety Assistant, a KE&G employee safety committee, and a safety incentive program to promote safety, which has resulted in a positive safety culture for the company and our employees. KE&G strongly believes that every employee is entitled to a safe and healthful place in which to work. We have a moral obligation to our employees, our clients, and the public to perform our construction projects in the safest manner possible.
