MAINTAINING SAFE JOB SITES
Safety

Our #1 Priority


Safety

At Walker Mechanical, our team is highly focused on consistently and continuously improving Safety Management each day. Without question, our people are our greatest asset, so protecting individuals working on and around our job sites is our first order of business. Safety is not simply a buzz word or an afterthought at Walker Mechanical. Maintaining safe job sites demands accountability, and in many instances, Walker employees and subcontractors are held to standards higher than those mandated by OSHA laws.

Creating safe work conditions also requires continuing education. Walker Mechanical employs a full-time Safety Director who has the breadth of knowledge and experience necessary to neutralize potentially dangerous situations. Our Safety Director develops job- and activity-specific safety plans, based on unique circumstances and situational factors, and she oversees mandatory in-house training seminars for new employees, for continuing education purposes. She also develops, updates and distributes Walker Mechanical’s safety policies, and performs on-site safety management audits to ensure the safest conditions possible.
