Safe Work Practices

Thanks to being a family-owned excavation company who places people first, we ensure that safe work practices are in place before work begins. And we place a high priority on rigorous and ongoing safety, which allows us to enjoy an excellent safety record.
  • Regularly servicing and recycling of our excavation machinery and construction equipment
  • Holding mandatory safety meetings
  • Ensuring that foremen and superintendents are well trained and are held accountable for excavation site safety
  • Complying with all local, state and federal environmental regulations
  • Rigorous safety training is ongoing
Our skilled operators are equipped with highly advanced GPS instrumentation that allows our Salem excavation company to provide greater precision and less excavation and grading rework for clients.
