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 employee’s number one priority, we made it one of the three core principles that guide Ajax Paving — Quality, Safety, Productivity.

Vigilance is key. Work zones are constantly reviewed for safety issues. Professional Traffic Control personnel set up, maintain and dismantle road closures following the Michigan Manual for Uniform Traffic Control Devices guidelines.

In-house traffic regulators also play a crucial role in maintaining the safety of workers and motorists at construction sites.

Ajax Paving has a 15-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.
