Our “Be Prepared” safety program gives our employees the tools they need to accomplish any task by safest means necessary, and represents the culture of our company. Our safety goal at Live Oak is simple: Get ALL employees back home to their families safely every day.
All new employees are required to attend a Live Oak orientation course which provides information about the following:
- Live Oak policies & safety incentives
- Drug-free work environment
- Fall Protection
- Ladder Safety
- Scaffold Safety
- Equipment Safety
- Hand tool Safety
- Material handling
- Accident Prevention
We understand that safety starts and ends with each employee. Our “Be Prepared” program creates both a safe working environment for our guys, and sends the message to all that safety remains our top priority. They are trained to “expect the unexpected” at all times through every assigned activity, and are always on-guard to “be aware of your surroundings” while working on-site. Weekly toolbox meetings are conducted by our qualified foremen, and random internal safety audits are conducted by management. Additionally, Live Oak requires that all foremen obtain their 10 hour OSHA certifications.
