Heightened Awareness

Heightened awareness is an absolute requirement, and we achieve this through consistent safety policies and procedures that are implemented by all of our teams on all of our projects.

Corporate Safety Director Bob Walsh creates a specific safety program for each project, with a project team member designated to implement the program across the site. Bob conducts bi-weekly site inspections on every project.

Continuous Training

Harkins personnel are continuously trained in the latest developments in safety, which allows us to create a safety culture across the company that becomes second nature to our employees.

All of our field employees are OSHA 30 certified, and on government projects strict adherence and training in the Corps of Engineers EM385 1-1 is mandatory.

Sharing Best Practices

We share best practices among all of our teams and our subcontractor partners. This promotes consistency and continual improvement across the company.  We are always developing and updating our safety policies and procedures, reflected in our corporate safety manual.

Diamond Award Recognition

Our accomplishments result directly from the efforts of all our employees working together toward the shared goal of a safe workplace. We are proud of our ranking in ABC’s STEP program as a Diamond Award contractor, the highest level of achievement.
