Protecting our most important resources

We regard the health and safety of our team members and the safeguarding of the Great Lakes environment as two paramount responsibilities.

Best Safety Practices

We take a comprehensive approach to establishing and maintaining best safety practices.

For example, our organization follows detailed operational procedures. These include hazard assessment meetings wherein team members map out the steps required to complete every project with safety as the top priority.

Skilled tradespeople are provided continuous training that meet OSHA 10, OSHA 30, eRailsafe, and MSHA standards.


In all of our repair operations, we strive to minimize our environmental footprint.
