SAFETY

Safety is More Than a Priority for W. M. Lyles Co.

SAFETY CULTURE AT W. M. LYLES

Safety is more than a priority for W. M. Lyles Co.; it is our most important core value. We are committed to providing a safe and healthy working environment for all employees, subcontractors, project stakeholders, and the community. Our safety team will passionately pursue compliance with safe practices dictated by locations, conditions, and circumstances unique to each jobsite.

Our record proves our commitment to safety. With an extremely low workers’ compensation rate (EMR .76) and a full time safety staff across the State, the Lyles Construction Group realizes the necessity of safe construction operations.

Consistent with our corporate values and the belief that our strength lies in our employees, the continued health and safety of our people is paramount to the continued success of the Lyles Construction Group. Our award winning safety program is based upon a “Zero Accident Culture.”

We support the philosophy that work related injury and illness are not acceptable and that work related incidents are preventable. Our culture ensures continuous and cooperative efforts to solve issues as they arise and ensure that resources are available for training, hazard control, safety incentive programs and safety equipment. This culture starts from the president of the company on down through all levels of the organization. This culture involves participation at all levels which focus on constant detailed evaluation and improvement to eliminate all hazards in the workplace.

Nothing we do is worth injury and illness to our employees. We believe that there is always a way to safely perform our work assignments. We are committed to eliminating or controlling hazards we deal with on a daily basis to ensure that our people return home safely at the end of each day.
