  • Participation in OSHA Safety Programs for all employees
  • Forklift drivers are certified
  • Random drug and alcohol testing for all workers in all positions
  • “Safety Huddles” and “Tool Box Safety Talks” are conducted at every job site daily
  • Professionally certified pre-work stretching programs
  • 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 at all times; hardhats, safety glasses, hi-vis clothing, and other safety equipment as necessary for the tasks they are performing.

“Safety is front and center in all we do at Ellis and that culture drives every element of our company. From daily safety huddles to pre-task planning and site specific elements when necessary; our number one priority in all we do, is ensuring that each and every member of our team and partners goes home safely every day.”
