The personal safety and health of each employee at Comer Construction, in addition to everyone working at each of our job sites, is of utmost importance. As part of our ongoing commitment to safety, Comer Construction formed a company Safety Committee to prevent occupationally-induced injuries and illnesses.
For more than five years, our Safety Committee has provided employees a voice to ensure all mechanical and physical facilities required for personal safety and health are controlled and maintained in keeping with the highest standards.
Our Safety Committee meets the first Wednesday of each month. We encourage at least one person from each sector of the company to attend the monthly meetings to ensure we have a collective and comprehensive voice throughout the company, however attendance is open to all employees to attend as they see fit.
