ConcreteSouth: A Culture of Safety

ConcreteSouth institutes and follows a safety culture that permeates every corner of its member companies 24 hours a day, seven days a week

It’s no secret that construction jobsites and heavy manufacturing operations are busy places where potential safety hazards often lurk around every corner. With nearly 6.5 million people working at approximately 252,000 construction sites across the nation on any given day, according to OSHA, the fatal injury rate for the construction industry is higher than the national average for all industries.

Knowing this – and understanding that its own operations present their own set of safety concerns –ConcreteSouth puts a 110 percent effort into ensuring its own employees, facilities, jobsites, projects, and customers remain safe and healthy on a 24/7 basis.

Creating an environment where workers, contractors, and customers know that they are safe is a focal point for all companies that make up Concrete South. With corporate social responsibility playing a large role in our overall mission, we put safety first on a 24/7 basis.

“Safety is a global initiative across our entire footprint,” says ConcreteSouth’s Spencer Weitman. “By making safety a priority, we’ve shown that we’re committed to minimizing lost-time accidents, workers’ compensation claims, and other safety-related issues.”

All of ConcreteSouth's companies conduct safety training courses that rotate among each plant and utilize video training, hands-on demonstrations, tests, and other means of getting its message out to the right people.

“We truly are partnering with our customers, most of whom also have a strong emphasis on safety,” says Weitman. “We’re covering a different core topic every month. It’s very comprehensive and non-stop; there’s no finish line here. We’ll be doing this as long as we are in existence as a company.”
