Zero injuries is always our goal. The safety of employees, inspectors, motorists, and pedestrians in work zones and facilities is paramount. To ensure safety is every employee’s number one priority, we made it one of the three core principles guiding Ajax Paving — Quality, Safety, Productivity.
Vigilance is key. Work zones are constantly reviewed for safety issues. Professional Traffic Control personnel set up, maintain, and dismantle road closures following the Michigan Manual for Uniform Traffic Control Devices guidelines.
In-house traffic regulators also play a crucial role in maintaining the safety of workers and motorists at construction sites.
Ajax Paving has a 15-member safety committee with representation from every level of the company — laborers, operators, foremen, and management. This group regularly reviews safe work practices, work zone safety, incidents, PPE, and safety policies to ensure a safe working environment.
