Our Approach to Safety
At Tompkins Excavating we make sure our viewpoint on safety, is every single employee’s viewpoint on safety. If you work for us, you have no doubt heard Stacey Tompkins say more than once “We have goals on our projects that change every day, but the same goal we have every day is to get you home safe and sound to your family.”
How do we reach our goal?
We start discussing the topic of safety from the first time we meet a potential employee at their interview. When hired, our new employee has to read and sign off on our company safety manual. To then ensure safety is on the forefront of our employee’s minds while on the job site, our field leaders hold daily safety huddles. These huddles are job specific, as each job has different hazards. We also take advantage of our quarterly company meeting to review the topic of safety. By employee participation, we dive into safety topics we have been successfully adhering to and even what we need to improve on. This honest discussion allows our employees on and off the job site to be aware, grow, and improve in our safety habits.
