Growing Our Safety Commitment

While Ahern maintains an impressive safety record (2.4 times better than the industry average for the last 10 years), this is an area that can always be improved. Three months ago, we made the decision to require any employees (field or office) who have exposure to our jobsites or shop environments acquire at minimum OSHA 10 hour training for the construction industry. This has always been a requirement for field employees, but was new for many office positions. We now have over 700 employees who hold OSHA 10 certification, and over 60 holding OSHA 30! In addition, Ahern employees also receive in-depth training from our Safety Department for specific hazards they may be exposed to, a few of which include fall protection, confined space, and excavation competent person.
