Focusing on the safety & health of our employees and neighbors, while striving to preserve the environment.
Our Safety & Health Focus
Associated Asphalt’s family of businesses are committed to providing a safe workplace, free from all hazards. To this end, we have active safety committees at all operating facilities, consisting of operators and maintenance personnel to maintain environmental health & safety operations. They are charged with detecting, reporting and correcting hazards both physical and procedural, found in the workplace.
Our safety culture is based on the philosophy of our brother’s keeper, caring for and taking care of each other. Building and improving trust-based relationships is key to our success.
Using an analytical approach to incidents helps us determine contributing factors to the behavior leading up to the incident; outside influences affecting decisions; and system/procedural issues. We believe this approach improves our ability to implement corrective and preventative measures, by providing for true two-way conversations.
