Safety @ Medford Wellington
“Hard work completes the job; safety gets you home.”
The health and wellbeing of our employees, as well as anyone else in and around a jobsite, is an integral part of the culture at Medford Wellington. We work to educate our employees to conduct themselves in the safest manner possible from arrival at the site through the proper clean up procedures. With a combination of classroom training, in the field experience, industry specific guest consultations, weekly safety communications, quality assurance checks and more, we are constantly training and continuing the safety education of our employees.
