Andgar Corp. encourages its employees to think about safety at work and at home.

The company, an AGC Safety Team member, has initiated a behavior-based safety education program to help employees think about what they do and how they do it on and off the job, making safety a driving factor in employees’ everyday lives. The management team and safety committee are working together to implement the program throughout the company.

Andgar’s management team provided personal protective equipment long before it was required by the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

Andgar also makes sure safety starts with the job bids and is carried out through each step of every project. Before other topics are discussed, department meetings start with safety to emphasize its importance to the company.

With more than 640,000 employee hours logged over the last three years, Andgar has had only two lost work day cases.
