Safety is the most important measure of success for our company. Commercial landscaping is a dangerous business, so keeping our crews, our clients, and their property safe requires constant focus.
We recently launched our internal ‘Safety Works!’ program, designed to encourage our Landscape Professionals to work safely in the field. In return for putting their safety knowledge into safety practice, they have the chance to earn an extra incentive when they’re caught in the act - of safety.
It’s been a very successful program so far, and it’s easy to participate. We ask our staff to send in photos from the field, telling us who’s in the photo, where they are, and what they’re doing safely. We collect and share the photos and details with our whole company, recognizing our Landscape Professionals who are working safely across the company and reminding us all to work safely.
We hope you’ll enjoy seeing our Landscape Professionals in our upcoming Safety Spotlight features.
We start with a photo of Anthony from our Charleston Install branch. Working beside a small residential roadway, in a construction area, with no vehicle to protect him, he’s using his traffic control devices to create a safe work zone for himself. Thank you, Anthony, for setting a great example in our first Safety Spotlight!
