Safety First. It’s not only required by the industry, its Bergerson’s way of doing business. Our commitment to zero incidents is the number one way in which we ensure successful projects. We expect each and every employee, subcontractor and supplier to share in our core value of maintaining safe jobsites. As our industry and projects continue to evolve, our programs and practices are continually evaluated in order to maintain the highest levels of safety awareness and compliance.

Our approach to Safety is defined by three elements: training, focus and follow-up. We commit the resources to give our employees the knowledge they need to recognize safe behavior and act accordingly. We stay all ears to identify trouble areas and prevent incidents before they happen. We respond to lessons learned through experience, not only by us, but by those shared from others in our industry.

Ongoing training is a major priority for Bergerson, as we believe that it is the foundation upon which our Company’s culture of Safety is built. Members of our management team have completed the OSHA 30 course. Each field employee has completed the OSHA 10 and maintains current certificates in CPR and First Aid. Additionally, each of our crane operators are NCCCO certified.

Communication in the field is accomplished through both formal and informal safety meetings. Each member of Bergerson’s team is expected and committed to take the active individual ownership that leads to a safe work environment.

Because of each employees commitment to safety, Bergerson has been recognized for safely completing several projects including environmental restoration, marine construction, dredging, piledriving, deep foundations, pier and bridge work.
