SAFETY

IT'S NOT JUST BUSINESS, IT'S PERSONAL

Safety is always our top priority, and we are committed to producing projects in complete compliance with all environmental, state and federal OSHA requirements. In fact, the standards we require of our employees and subcontractors frequently exceed OSHA requirements. At American Value Construction, we are dedicated to moving past a standard for safety. We have created a true culture of safety and compliance for our company and those we work with, and we work hard to continuously maintain, develop and improve our safety program. We also believe that safety should extend far beyond the workplace, which is why we encourage and teach our employees to remain safe and healthy outside of work and at home with their families.
