At Ford Construction Company, safety is fundamental to our culture. We believe that every accident, and therefore every injury, is preventable, and we embed that philosophy into every project through a combination of technical field procedures and mandatory employee training programs. Every employee has the authority to stop work if unsafe working conditions are encountered. Subcontractors and associates are encouraged to embrace our commitment to health and safety.

The result of our commitment to the health and safety of our employees, subcontractors, and the traveling public is exceptional safety performance. We have received numerous Safety Awards from the Tennessee Road Builders Association (TRBA) for our exceptional safety record. A few of our most recent Safety Awards include:

Ford Construction Company’s 2014 Experience Modification Rating is 0.68.
  • 2014 Platinum Level Safety Award, 426,626 man-hours with zero-frequency injuries
  • 2013 Platinum Level Safety Award, 402,183 man-hours with zero-frequency injuries

Our dedication to safety is a benefit to the workers and also to our customers. The operating costs go down and productivity goes up due to less time lost to accidents. The greatest benefit, however, is that our people go home to their families safely at the end of each day.
