Ellis is committed to safe worksites, from the superintendent to the subcontractors and visitors on the site. The Ellis safety program starts with well-trained and safety-minded employees. This good safety attitude is developed through:

  • Participation in OSHA Safety Program for all employees
  • Forklift drivers are certified
  • Random drug and alcohol testing for workers in safety-sensitive positions including crane operators
  • Daily "Safety Huddles" and "Tool Box Safety Talks" are conducted at every job site
  • Regular safety training for new and experienced staff
  • Incentive program to encourage and reward safe practices
  • All personnel on a job site are required to wear hardhats, safety glasses, hi-visibility clothing, and other safety equipment as necessary for the tasks they are performing
