Every employee remains on a continual observaton. Employees able to comply with company policies without discretion receive above-average wages, profit sharing and benefit opportunities.
ONGOING HEALTH AND SAFETY TRAINING

ECG utilizes a comprehensive Job Site Analysis (JSA's) to be completed on all projects. Pre-project start-up JSA's halep managers and superintendents recognize preexisting hazards, enabling proper mobilization of safety equipment and material, and ensure projects will be completed safely. Continuing JSA's completed during execution of the project enable field personnel to recognize hazards that may have previously been unforeseen. Tool Box talks completed at the project site re-ensures that the hazards that may exist on the site are commnicated with all field personnel. Unannounced site inspections by management and safety professionals ensure projects ar being completed to all local, state and federal regulations as well as ECG's corporate health and safety program.
