Safety

Safety First. Safety Always.

The safety of employees, inspectors, motorists and pedestrians in work zones and plants is paramount. Our goal is zero injuries at our job sites and facilities. To ensure safety is every employeeʼs number one priority, we made it one of the three core principles that guide Ajax Paving — Safety, Quality, Productivity.

Ajaxʼs commitment to safety on all projects is represented through daily inspections, tool-box meetings, and continued safety awareness training. Safety is the priority of every member of the Ajax Team. To strengthen our safety efforts, Ajax employs three full-time, dedicated, OSHA certified Safety Managers. Our safety managers conduct job site safety inspections, coordinate all necessary safety training, and lead Ajaxʼs safety committee.

At Ajax Paving, each day starts with a safety meeting where the Internal Traffic Control Plan (ITCP) is reviewed and safe operations are discussed. Weekly safety meetings are conducted as part of the Teamʼs standard operating procedure.

Ajax Paving has an employee member safety committee with representation from every level of the company — laborers, operators, foremen and management. This group regularly reviews safe work practices, work zone safety, incidents, PPE and safety policies to ensure a safe working environment.


“Ajax Paving Industries of Florida, LLC believes that safety is every employee’s responsibility. Through training and teamwork, it is imperative to make sure we have the safest job sites and facilities for the public, our subcontractors and Ajax employees.”

- Mandy Kustra, Ajax Safety Director
