The emphasis we place on personal health and safety at McGuire and Hester is a reflection of how deeply we value our employees. To us, on-the-job safety is more than a legal requirement; it is a core component of our culture. This means that it is an up and down program and every person at McGuire and Hester is responsible for the safety of themselves and those on their team. Our goal: zero accidents and zero injuries.
Our Safety Manual contains our Corporate Safety Policies, including our Code of Safe Practices and our Injury and Illness Prevention Program which details guidelines employees must follow to protect themselves and their fellow workers on the job. If any employee recognizes or anticipates an unsafe situation, they have full authority to stop the job and inform management without any fear of reprisal.
Our Safety Program is bolstered by our full time dedicated Safety & Risk Management Manager and our Safety Committee comprised of both field personnel and management. Our Program is enforced through our employees and our Area Managers. We support training and certification of our employees and recognize both our project teams and individual employees at our bi-annual company-wide safety training meetings.
