Safety Culture

thumbnails2

As a second generation family business where our employees are held in the same high regard as family, the safety of all employees is a top priority at Morrow-Meadows Corporation. Our behavior-based safety culture holds every employee from apprentice to Sr. level manager accountable for safety, both personally and collectively.

Safety Training

Safety training classes are conducted in-house by qualified trainers. In house training allows targeted training based on leading and lagging indicators that come directly from the real life experiences from our jobsites. Near misses are reported the same as accidents allowing us to focus our training to risk areas and behaviors.

All field managers receive regular refresher classes keeping their California and Federal OSHA Certifications current. Included are classes on Fall Protection, Excavation Safety, Confined Space, Hazard Communication, Mobile and Aerial Lift operation and safety to name just a few.
