Our Safety Leadership

John Patton
Safety Director

The Board of Certified Safety Professionals certifies John Patton as a Certified Safety Professional (CSP) and he’s a member of the American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE). In addition, John is an authorized OSHA outreach trainer for the OSHA 10- and 30-hour classes in Construction. As our safety leader, John implements employee safety awareness and supports proactive management disciplines to ensure a strong corporate safety culture.

Our Mission

We endorse a proactive safety culture relying on the ownership and teamwork of our employees. The foundation of our safe work environment will be education, training and recognition. By stressing the importance of Safe Actions, we will grow our safety awareness and then recognize the contributions of those employees in support of this proactive safety culture. We will continually seek innovative ways to build upon our core safety values. Our success will be defined by measurably increasing our “Safe Actions” resulting in injury reduction.

Our Philosophy

Exceptional safety performance is a direct result of the organizational culture. To achieve a viable safety culture, safety must be internalized by each individual within the organization. Once safety is internalized it becomes a core value of the individual; core values cannot be compromised. Therefore, safety is a value associated with every priority. Internalized safety values are outwardly demonstrated by “Safe Actions,” those actions that demonstrate work performed safely. Safe Actions are measurable and are used to create and reinforce the internalized core values.
