At WS Aiken, we're proud of our track record. Our supervisors are all OSHA 30 trained and our field teams are OSHA 10 trained. We constantly train on and discuss safety topics, taking a broad perspective.
We want to take a minute to assure you, our employees and your families, our customers, and our business partners, that WS Aiken is taking every precaution to keep our community and those we serve healthy.
Safety is for everyone
Our safety measures are designed to benefit everyone, including our workers on the job site, anyone using the building, and the general public.
Safety is for everywhere
In addition to industry-standard toolbox talks, our trainings emphasize good health, safe driving, and other topics that contribute to safety on and off the job site.
Safety is about everyone
Drug testing, background checks, and a culture of dignity ensure that our crew will treat your building users with the respect and care everyone deserves.
SAFETY + BEYOND
When we treat each other with dignity, we are all empowered to speak up. This is vitally important on the job site, because everyone can speak up about anything which might compromise safety. Beyond that, I appreciate feeling safe in the workplace because I am treated with dignity and respect.
Ariela Mercado, Service Manager
GETTING HOME SAFE
Part of my job is to make sure that our crew is treated with dignity on and off the job site. Roofing is a very physical job. We ned to make sure that our team has the right amount of breaks and resources to stay safe and healthy, whether it's staying rested and hydrated in hot summer weather or navigating cold and slippery conditions in the winter. We want everyone to get home safe and healthy at the end of the day.
Hector Maldonado, Senior Project Manager
GETTING ENOUGH SLEEP
One of your most important pieces of protective gear is your bed! A good night's sleep is essential to workplace safety. Our core value, "Always do your best," recognizes that team members may not always be feeling 100%, and encourages us to speak up when we need accommodation.
Daniel Harvey, Estimator
An important part of any workplace safety program is to have the right gear. Our core value, "Be impeccable with your word," is put into action on a daily basis by providing our crew with the gear they need to work safely. Nate Pritchard, Business Development
Massachusetts' recently enacted Distracted Driving Law gave us an opportunity to remind our team to drive safely, to and from the job site and everywhere else they go. Our core value, "Take the time to do it right," reminds us to slow down and not try to do too many things at once.
Skip Tweed, Senior Project Manager
