As a fourth-generation industry leader in heavy highway construction, asphalt manufacturing, and bridge construction, Ford Construction Company puts Safety at the forefront of every task from planning to completion.
We continually improve our processes, demonstrate leadership, and promote comprehensive proactive safety decisions as our company’s safety culture is vitally important. Employees at all levels must work diligently to execute the company’s policy of maintaining a safe and healthy work environment. This will ensure the continuous improvement of our company’s performance. Strictly adhering to all aspects of our safety program will result in our expectation of returning each and every employee home safely at the end of the day.
