Safety

A letter from the Safety Director—

Thanks for checking out our website and for your interest in our business. I’m proud, and honored, to be part of the Palmetto Corp team and more importantly, the leader of our Safety Division. We currently employee over 400 people, and continue to grow every day. So the safety of our people, and the ones around us is our top priority. We understand that our people are what makes us whole. As a family owned and operated company for three generations, we all have become part of this Palmetto Corp Family. And families protect each other. This isn’t just my job, or the crew foreman’s job, or the owners job…

SAFETY IS EVERYONES JOB.

With every new on-boarding class I emphasize our #1 goal: We want you to go home in the same condition you showed up to work in—but just a little more tired! My team and I strive every day to make this goal a reality.

Working in the construction and heavy highway industry definitely poses its own challenges when it comes to safety, but we work daily to get better. “Get better” is a vague term so let me elaborate. Safety is our never-ending goal. It’s a goal with no finish line. It’s not an attainable place that once you get there you can slow down. It is constant. It is ever-changing, and it is challenging. In our attempts to pursue our goal, we do continuous cycles of trainings, investigations, trend targeting, accident analysis and more just in order to perpetually “get better”.

With tasks like repairing highways while traffic is still active, installing storm-water drainage systems in narrow right-of-ways, and working under strict time constraints, we have to be more cautious and creative every day when it comes to production without compromising the safety of our people. Through the help of great partners like The Department of Transportation, The Association of General Contractors (AGC), The SC Trucking Association, all contribute to improving safety standards in this industry and are bringing safety awareness to new heights! New laws for work zones has been a huge initiative headed up by SCDOT to help our people stay safe at work. With proactive partners like these, the safety of our people and the ones around us, will remain at the forefront of our minds. Just like our core values state:

Safety: an uncompromising commitment. No exceptions. 

If you have additional questions about our safety programs, staff, or initiatives, please don’t hesitate to contact me at lwallace@palmettocorp.net. Thanks again for your interest our Palmetto Corp family!

 

Have a safe day,

Lindsay Wallace
Safety Director
