Safety Management

At Williams Erection Company, Safety is not just a program that we have added on to our operations. Just as we are committed to erecting complex steel structures and meting or beating the project schedule, safety is an integral part of everything we do. As an American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) Certified Advanced Erector, safety is especially critical to WEC. Safety Excellence is Our Goal!

Safety is also important for our employees and our customers because WEC is involved in the erection of complex and difficult steel erection projects with difficult erection sequences and erection methods. To be successful on those projects, we must have an excellent safety record. Excellence in safety is not only good for our employees, but in today's work environment, it leads to lower costs not just for Williams Erection Company, but for our customers. From the ground up, safety is integrated into every project.

From our ironworkers, who are constantly trained in safety practices, to our foreman, who train, coach and constantly evaluate project safety performance, to our project managers, who work towards engineering out safety issues even before the project is bid or performed, to our president, who lead the entire safety effort. Excellence in safety performance is our goal on every project.

To support our team, on projects where the safety demands require it, we assign full time safety managers to constantly mange the safety effort and provide for the entire project team through training and consultation with project management, to engineer out safety issues and as a liaison with owner/ customer representatives to ensure a coordinated safety performance.

SOME OF OUR RECENT SAFETY ACCOMPLISHMENTS INCLUDE:

  • Our company has accomplished in excess of one year without a loss time accident.
  • The last five major projects have been completed without a recordable accident and only a few minor first aids.
  • Our field crews have been recognized on three recent major projects receiving the highest safety audit scores from the owners safety audit staff.

As we continue to demonstrate by performance, at Williams Erection Company, "Safety Excellence Is Our Goal."
