Safety

Tellepsen has been recognized by the national Associated General Contractors (AGC) with its prestigious “Safest in the Nation” designation for three consecutive periods. No other construction company in the nation has this distinction. By maintaining an accident free workplace we protect the integrity and value of our fellow workers, along with our physical and financial assets. We accomplish this through clear management direction and individual education, responsibility and action. It is a collective mission for which we hold each other accountable, ensuring success through aggressive inspection, measurement, reporting, recognition and response. Our goal is for everyone to go home safely, because we know that we impact more than just the lives of our people. Our commitment to safety extends to families, fr
iends, our clients and the communities where they live.

We build a safe attitude into every employee, and through hours of training we expand that attitude into positive behaviors and practices. All subcontractor employees are also required to complete the Tellepsen Safety Orientation Program annually before working on our projects. We are very intentional in our approach to motivating our employees and our subcontractors’ employees. You can’t evaluate performance without inspection. We use advanced mobile technology to accurately predict risk exposure and track safety performance. This data is immediately uploaded through the internet to a central server where risk exposure patterns are tracked and reports made instantly available to management.
