“[Sauer] surpassed all expectations... [Their] safety plan, documentation, and execution led to an impressive zero mishap accident record. An outstanding project with an outstanding contractor.”
Safety is the foundation of our culture
Safety doesn’t just happen – it takes training, coaching, passion, and commitment. We believe that safety is the responsibility of each and every person from our president / CEO to the tradesperson working on our jobsite.
Enhanced training programs, frequent site visits from top management, and safety audits, help identify and mitigate issues that may result in worker injuries. We require a minimum of 30-hour certification for all senior managers, project managers, project engineers, superintendents, foremen, quality control, and safety managers.
To raise awareness and enhance workplace safety, we offer additional training in identified problem areas throughout the course of a project. Our on-going safety training programs include:
• Employee orientation
• Excavation training
• Confined space training
• Fire protection training
• Fall protection training
• Emergency procedures training
• Forklift training
• Scaffold training
• Electrical training
• Crane safety / rigging
• Respiratory protection training
• Hazardous material training
• First aid / CPR training
We are proud of our prestigious safety awards and of our safety statistics, which continually outperform the industry average. Sauer earned a .58 against a 1.0 benchmark EMR (the industry measure that demonstrates effectiveness in overall safety performance).
