Safety

DSCF0613Our DELTA Nooter management safety commitment shows on every project and is reflected in the performance of every task. Few companies have a safety record as strong and consistent as that of the Nooter family of companies.

The cornerstone of our safety program is management commitment and we would not be as successful as we are without it. Our safety records are proof of that commitment and success.

A management foundation principal is that our safe job is a productive job. As such, our safety management philosophy is woven into every phase of the business, from the initial bid process, to the pre-job planning, and finally, to our execution in the field.

Management reinforces with all personnel that safety, not production, is the most important aspect of the job. This message is extended into the field to superintendents, site foremen and to each craftsman.

Our safety staff ensures compliance to the rules, but more importantly, continues its mission of safety education and training for our work force. This is accomplished by monitoring jobsites, recognizing potential hazards, and working with our employees to establish safe work practices that will ensure a safe worksite today and into the future.

Our track record speaks to our commitment to safety.
