Safety: the non-negotiable foundation of our operations

While cost and schedule may be open to negotiation, our approach to safety is written in stone. In everything we do, the safety of our people, our partners, and the communities we serve comes first.

At Abernethy, we train our people in the latest safety protocols and empower them to protect themselves and their fellow coworkers on the jobsite. Our priority on safety is reflected in our record of incident-free projects, which in turn has improved our ability to deliver work efficiently and cost-effectively for our clients.

Our process

Our work begins with safety

Safety is the foundation that everything else is built upon. Here are just a few of the ways that we work to daily ensure the safety of our teams.

  • We create safety plans that are specific to every project to address situational hazards before they occur.
  • Each workday begins with Jobsite Safety Analysis (JSA) led by our project foremen.
  • We improve safety with an on-going review process that includes input from our teams in the field.
