Because industrial safety requirements are so rigorous, we are among the few qualified asphalt paving contractors able to operate in the Gulf South’s petrochemical facilities. While remaining responsive to changing conditions and the needs of our client, our team consistently exceeds performance standards in hazardous industrial environments.

Our crews are PICS-compliant and ISNetworld-compliant, and our Total Recordable Incidence Rate (TRIR) and Experience Modification Rate (EMR) consistently meet industry requirements.

Integral to our companywide effort to protect health and life and to supporting our Journey to Zero incidents, we ask every employee to accept “The 6” core responsibilities. From mentoring new employees and keeping aware of surroundings to guiding motorists and staying hydrated to avoiding contact with utilities and preventing any unexpected release of stored energy — our crews stay on top of our jobsite safety.

Additionally, our comprehensive Total Process Reliability (TPR) program teaches our operators about maintaining safe and properly functioning equipment through scheduled inspection, cleaning, and lubrication. Our continuous efforts to maintain our fleet help us to provide a safe working environment by ensuring the safety of our equipment.
