WE are United in Safety
WE are champions of safety
Compliance with regulations is just a baseline, and great safety performance is never luck. It takes teamwork, discipline, focus, and coordination. We are committed to building a zero-injury mindset in our culture and on each of our jobsites.
Every project works with the WEO safety department to develop a project-specific safety program, from preconstruction through construction.
Safety certifications are required for all tradesmen in specialized areas such as scaffold training, fall protection, excavations, burning, and welding.
We provide continuous training on a variety of topics. All employees are certified in OSHA 30 and receive CPR/AED & First Aid training.
Our employees engage in a variety of safety meetings on both a corporate and jobsite level to discuss safety trends, regulation changes, and process improvements.
Preplanning is key to preventing injuries and accidents. In addition, we utilize a computer software-based inspection system to identify hazardous trends and develop corrective actions before issues occur.
Safety awards are distributed to individuals and teams who have demonstrated excellence in safety on the job. As an example, our Chicago program includes a Safe Site Award, Safe Sub Award, and Outstanding Tradespeople Award.
