Safety is a priority and it is embedded in our culture.

National Safety Week

At KE&G safety is a priority and it is embedded in our culture. We have a moral obligation to our workforce, our clients and the general public to perform our construction projects in the safest possible manner.

Safety is a priority and it is embedded in our culture.

In an effort to continuously reinforce these core values, KE&G’s full-time Safety Manager’s sole job is to teach, review and maintain safety in all aspects for KE&G. This includes conducting monthly supervisor safety meetings for all supervisory personnel to review our collective performance and discuss how we can improve.

All Superintendents, Foreman, Field Engineers, and Project Managers have been trained in Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) principles.

The SWPPP Coordinator at KE&G inspects all of our jobsites every week to ensure that each and every site maintains the highest level of environmental protection. The Best Management Practices (BMPs) that KE&G uses in its SWPPP plans have been selected for their reduced environmental impact. KE&G also makes every possible attempt to “tread lightly” on jobsites and to minimize the amount of destruction caused to the habitats surrounding jobsites.
When KE&G decided to implement a behavioral 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 in an effort to take our safety performance to the next level.
KE&G’s safety program includes a safety committee and a safety incentive program to promote safety, which has resulted in a positive safety culture for the company and its 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.
