OUR TOP PRIORITY
Our company management, supervisors, and field personnel view job site safety as a shared responsibility. All employees are obligated to comply with company safety policies, stop work activities when safety hazards are encountered, and report safety concerns to supervisors or management personnel.

- Identify and photograph potential hazards
- Create steps to avoid hazards and safely perform the work
- Obtain and Implement proper PPE to safely perform the work
Our field staff completes and maintains training certification in:
- OSHA 10
- OSHA 30
- First Aid/CPR/AED
- Ammonia/Lead/ Asbestos/Silica
- Bucket Truck/ Auger Truck

proactive safety initiative
our concept of safety
All our employees are immersed in our culture of safety from day one. Rigorous jobsite safety training is provided to all crew members when they are onboarded, and all new hires are evaluated to determine where they need more development and training. We emphasize the immediate identification of hazards, and we teach our crew members how to effectively avoid them. We understand that all job sites have unique challenges, which is why we are proactive in our approach to planning ahead when we know safety issues could arise. Our Safety Director takes a highly visible role at our job sites and evaluates any potential safety issues. We ask our crew members for feedback on how to improve our programs. The safety of everyone on job sites is important to Westphal, which is why we want the best equipment for our workers. Prior to every use, all equipment must be inspected, recorded, and reviewed. Equipment is only as good as the tradesperson who uses it.
