At Cleland Site Prep, success means sending each of our employees home safely to their families every night. "Safety First" is not just a motto; we are committed to making it a reality 365 days a year. We have a full-time safety manager on staff that works with upper management to develop, monitor, and enforce all safety policies. The comprehensive program starts at orientation, where all new hires are given safety gear and are trained in all proper safety protocol and procedures.

At the beginning of every job, project managers and supervisors hold pre-construction safety meetings to outline job specific risks, and to develop plans to mitigate them. Every morning, employees partake in mandatory toolbox safety meetings and complete a Job Hazard Analysis sheet. On a monthly basis, Cleland also holds formal classes and seminars that cover topics such as:

  • OSHA 10 Hour Safety Training
  • OSHA Competent Persons Training
  • Trench Excavation Training
  • Confined Spaces Training
  • Defensive Driving training
  • First Aid & CPR Training
  • Training in Proper Towing and Tie Down Procedures
  • Traffic Control & Flagging Training
  • Shop Safety Training
  • Equipment Specific Operation Training
