At PB Materials, Safety Always means just that — no incidents, and no injuries, no matter how seemingly minor. We all have family and friends who care about us and want us to stay safe at work. We also care about our co-workers and the public at large. We take seriously our responsibility to keep each other and the public safe on our jobs. Nothing is more important! Safety is always part of the process.
From mining the aggregates that go into each end every yard of concrete to the talented employees that deliver it to your project we are committed at all levels of our organization to our “Safety Always” way of doing business. Safety is not set in stone at PB Materials, but rather in each and every yard of concrete and ton of rock we deliver. We take pride in our safety culture and it shows!
Our safety vision defines PB materials, and sets us apart from the rest of our industry. This is because our employees are empowered and the responsibility rests on everyone’s shoulders. We are accountable for ourselves, our co-workers, project partners, and the public surrounding as we interact with them at our jobsites. Each PB Materials employee regardless of job or location, has the responsibility to speak up when they see something that causes a safety concern. That, combined with employee involvement, active leadership engagement, and embracing the tools we have readily available, sets the foundation for “Safety Always”.
At PB materials, we are passionate about safety! Every person at every level of our business is authorized, and expected to speak up when they see a safety concern. We call it “STOP WORK AUTHORITY”. We encourage our employees to take an active and responsible role in matters of health and safety. If something isn't in line with our safety standards our employees are expected to let us know and they do. When it comes to protecting our employees and the public, collaboration at all levels of the organization is key. Each location is expected work to eliminate hazards in the workplace.
ACTIVE LEADERSHIP ENGAGEMENT
PB Materials leaders have a special responsibility when it comes to safety. Every leader we have, is intensely committed to safety. Not just through words, but actions. Leaders create the proper environments where people can't help but do the right thing every time.
Our tools and equipment empower employees take an active role in creating a safe workplace. We invest back into our fleet of over the road aggregate haulers, mixers trucks, and mining equipment. Highly maintained modern equipment also plays a part in our safety success. In addition safety training, safety management systems, and JSA (Job Safety Analysis tools) go hand in hand with the operation of our modern fleet.
We Embrace “Safety Always” We Work “Safety Always, We live “Safety Always”
