The most valuable resource in our organization is our people. Ed A. Wilson, Inc. places a high priority on the safety and health of our employees and we take pride in our safety record. This record of success can be attributed to the job site safety procedures we employ throughout the course of each project. Each job is reviewed on an ongoing basis by the superintendent, general superintendent, and project manager and periodically reviewed by our safety consultant. Violations of the Company’s Safety Policy are corrected so that the possibility of future accidents is minimized.

As part of our safety program, Ed A. Wilson, Inc. developed a Drug and Alcohol Policy which seeks to prevent the use or abuse of drugs and alcohol by our employees on company property or at a job site. Our policy defines prohibited acts and provides for testing (pre-employment, post accident, random and reasonable suspicion). All Ed A. Wilson, Inc. employees are bound by the Drug and Alcohol Policy as part of the terms and conditions of their employment. Subcontractors are also required to comply with Ed A. Wilson, Inc. Drug and Alcohol Policy guidelines.

Ed A. Wilson, Inc. believes that ongoing education is also important to an effective safety program. Weekly tool box safety meetings are conducted at the job.

We also retain the services of a safety consultant to conduct periodic safety training for our field personnel. Our superintendents also attend seminars to ensure that they are current on MUTCD (Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices) requirements.
