Our Commitment to a Safe and Healthy Work Environment
At Mustang Contracting we take our responsibility to our employees very seriously. We ensure that training in all aspects of our business, is a priority by everyone on our management team. Both subcontractors and employees participate in ongoing training and apply industry recognized safety procedures on every job site and in every situation.
Our staff recognizes each site brings new safety challenges which have to be addressed via their daily safety meeting and/or may be addressed by a site orientation seminar. They realize that the site safety program takes precedent over our program.
