Our commitment to safety is fundamental to our culture. Paramount in every single thing we do as a company, the protection of our employees and the traveling public informs our mission and our promise. Building the safest, most durable roads for Alabama’s driving public and being the safest company for both our employees and the public is our goal. Since 85% of deaths within a work zone are auto drivers and passengers, our top priority is work zone safety… it’s YOUR safety too!

- Each employee has STOP WORK AUTHORITY – if it is not safe, don’t do it!
- Daily meetings to discuss current and new technologies that ensure safety (goals are met)
- Ongoing Employee Safety Training
- Dedicated Safety Teams for all crews
- We require a team of construction veterans, highly trained, experienced safety and quality control experts on every jobsite
- From field crews to operators to drivers on up to management, everyone at Wiregrass is committed to safety
