Safety Commitment

Safety is an integral part of the construction industry, and at the core of our company values. Southern holds a commitment to interpreting each job site as unique, while delivering a comprehensive safety program that includes both hands-on and classroom safety training. A variety of courses are provided to each staff member, including First Aid/CPR, Blood-borne Pathogens, Fall Protection, Silicosis Awareness and Asbestos Awareness to help each employee feel confident and prepared no matter the job.

To enhance our Safety Program, we have implemented an on-site inspection process that ensures all staff comply with the highest standard of safety. This on-site inspection will help reduce preventable accidents and improve worker safety. Our safety program is a dynamic program, and one we continuously look to improve. Southern Insulation’s goal for 2017 is to have every employee OSHA 30 certified.
