Grand River Construction is fully devoted to creating safe and smart working environments for all those who are in the presence of our operations. Promoting a safe atmosphere for our teams, subcontractors, and even the public is not only our responsibility but is deeply rooted in our values. While safety has improved immensely over the past 20 years, we always believe there is something that we can continue to improve on or adopt.
Having a continuous improvement mentality puts us in the right position to welcome any advancements in safety technology which we can then be implemented in the field to make our workers safer and decrease risk of injury.
We believe that a huge component of a safe working environment is not only implementing safety plans and best practices, but by allowing our teams to feel comfortable to ask any questions and speak up about any potential concerns they may come across. By endorsing a educational environment instead of one that preaches punishment for simple mistakes, safety can be more of a discussion which will help to keep it top of mind.
"Safety isn't something you postpone for the ideal and comfortable future; it's the first condition necessary for the messy and unpredictable present."
