STRIVING FOR EXCELLENCE IN SAFE PRODUCTION
Safety guides every decision we make. From how we react in pivotal moments to what we do to solve problems long-term, we’re trained to seek sound and secure methods from the get-go. Safety is a top value for everyone at Artisan, whether they are a manager or front-line team member. Safety is a mindset infused deeply within our culture.
Employees participate in new-hire orientation and annual safety training. Superintendents and project foremen are trained in OSHA 30, First Aid/CPR/AED and various certifications. Our dedicated in-house safety department provides comprehensive training for all Artisan team members, including OSHA, MSHA, Fall Protection, Forklift, First Aid, Scaffold Erection, Rigging, Aerial Lift, and various other safety skills. In addition, the carpenters, millwrights, laborers and operating engineers all receive safety training through their union apprenticeship/affiliated programs.
Our Culture Revolves Around Safety
Supervisors conduct a daily job site analysis in the field to discuss safety hazards specific to each project and implement corrective controls unique for each job. They are constantly observing jobsite performance and they immediately correct any unsafe practices. The safety culture at Artisan Contracting, LLC starts from the top. It is ingrained into the very fabric of the company and is a priority at every level.
