SAFETY

Commitment to Safety

Althouse and Meade, Inc. places the safety of our staff and clients above all else.  We’ve implemented a company Injury and Illness Prevention Program as well as site-specific safety plans for specific projects.  Our philosophy of “Be vigilant, be careful, and come home safe” is not simply a collection of words.  It’s our commitment.  Our safety record speaks for itself.  From January 2013 to December 2015, our employees have worked over 164,000 hours without incurring an OSHA-reportable injury.  That’s the equivalent of nearly 79 person-years of working without a significant injury.
