Martin Means Safety

Safety

At Martin Concrete we know and understand that the most valued component of our organization is our employees. We employ a bottom up approach to our safety culture. Our safety program utilizes tools such as our safety committee, tool box meetings, upper management jobsite visits, and monthly jobsite safety audits to develop this culture. These efforts and achievements have helped build an award winning safety program at Martin Concrete.
