This is closely related to the topic of people – we have a responsibility to safely send our employees home each and every day.
We understand that there are hazards all around us every day, but we also like to think that every accident is preventable. It is our first priority to send our family and friends, who we call our coworkers, home every day in as good or better condition than they came to work that day.
We have a complete and concise safety manual that we endeavor to follow every day, but we realize that safety is everyone's responsibility. Safety is every employee’s first responsibility. We must look out for each other.
We do our best to educate our employees with the latest information and equip them with the latest equipment to ensure they have all the tools necessary to work safely and productively.
Our employees also must complete 10 hours of OSHA training and several have 30 hours. Our crews also possess MSHA part 46 and part 48 mine safety certifications. We also make ensure they are certified forklift and boom lift operators.
