Safety

Safety is more than just following rules and regulations at work. Our safety culture is part of who we are while we are at work, and at home. Keeping our people safe is a responsibility we don’t take lightly.

Our Safety Program

At Reed, safety is regarded as a fundamental value of the organization, and is the responsibility of every employee, at all levels. There is no exception to this. Performing our work safely is a primary business consideration for us. Our safety culture is a mindset that is practiced by our employees both on and off the job. It is who we are.

We are committed to providing a safe and healthy work environment to our people, because we believe that everyone benefits from an injury-free and accident-free workplace. We believe that all incidents are preventable, and we begin training our employees before they step foot on a Reed job site. New hire safety orientation is mandatory for all employees.

With an EMR well below the industry standard across a wide field, we have proven year after year that we walk the walk when it comes to safety. In fact, Reed is a proud award member of the Associated Builders and Contractors STEP Program. STEP has evolved into a world-class safety management system and is utilized by Reed Contracting.




To me, safety means going home every day to see our families. We look out for each other because we’re not just coworkers, we are family. My approach is that safety comes from within each and every one of us.

I look at safety as a way to communicate with my team members the importance of every one of them, and how much value they bring to our team and to their families.
