Combs’ safety program is driven by a CEO that demands a safe work environment at all times. This is enforced and managed by a safety officer who has the ability to not only identify risk and hazards, but to also take immediate action and stop operations that do not comply with our stringent safety program. Our safety officer also has full authority to terminate employees and subcontractors for any unsafe acts, as deemed necessary.
One of the unique aspects to our safety program is the fact that our Safety Officer is employed full-time and has experience and education in heavy civil construction, as well as in aviation construction, highways, roads, and various other civil works. Additionally, he has over 20 years as a sworn peace officer.
Our safety officer is an OSHA Authorized Trainer in Construction and General Industry, and provides in-house training on a consistent basis to ensure that we are up-to-date will any and all new safety regulations. He also serves as our in-house EMT and Rescue Technician.
With Combs’ diverse construction projects ranging from local roads to interstate and aviation construction, we take safety seriously. We never consider a project a success unless everyone involved or effected by the project returns home safely without injury. This is the Combs mission.
