Elmer W. Davis, Inc. believes there is no compromise when it comes to safety.  At the beginning of every job we evaluate potential safety hazards and develop our overall safety plan.  The first part of our safety plan is to draft a site specific project safety plan.

The second part of our safety plan is implementation.  The site specific project safety plan will be reviewed with the project foreman to address the job hazards and mitigation efforts.  A member of our full time safety staff will visit the site on a daily basis to ensure compliance with the safety plan and with all applicable Federal, State and Local safety regulations.  A copy of his daily inspection report can be made available to the Owner’s representative.

EWD’s safety department has over 30 years of experience is construction safety.
