Maintaining a Zero Accident Culture
Safety first is more than a slogan at Lyles Utility. Together with the affiliated operating companies of Lyles Construction Group, we maintain an award-winning safety program based on a Zero Accident Culture that’s embedded in the company’s identity.
Award Winning Safety Culture
- We believe that work-related injuries and illnesses are not acceptable and that all work-related incidents are preventable.
- To this end, our entire team works together to address potential issues before they arise, and we provide the resources necessary for comprehensive training, hazard control, safety incentive programs, and required safety equipment.
Our Commitment to Safety
- Our safety programs include Operator Qualification training for field workers, provided by Veriforce, a leader in regulatory compliance that verifies, audits, and documents all compliance records as part of the process. We are also a verified contractor in the ISNetworld data base ensuring our clients that we meet the most current levels of safety regulation and compliance. In addition, we believe in a drug- and alcohol-free environment, and to achieve this we perform D.O.T. pre-employment screening and random compliance drug and alcohol testing.
