Commitment to Safety
AWP Safety Is Your Safety Partner.
Safety is in our name. It is at the core of what we do. At AWP Safety, the concept of safety is not just about the operations of our teams, but those we protect. For us, safety protects progress, allowing our communities to move forward with building a better infrastructure. Safety = Progress. That’s why the AWP Safety Environmental Health & Safety (EHS) Team works diligently to ensure integration and standardization of top-performing safety practices across our company, coast to coast. Our team understands the safety commitment we uphold for ourselves, our customers, and our communities.
We Are Safety Certified.
As your safety partner, we know you rely on us – and we are serious about safety. AWP Safety teams are comprised of highly qualified protectors. The safety training and equipment used by our teams meets or exceed all requirements and regulations set by government and industry authorities.
All AWP Safety protectors complete over 40 hours of industry-leading training. Every AWP Safety protector is American Traffic Safety Services Association (ATSSA) certified, is required to pass courses in First Aid & CPR, and versed in compliant work zone set up.
All AWP Safety managers hold ATSSA and state-specific supervisor training credentials.
Project Managers provide additional oversight to work zone setups ensuring safety, compliance, and providing coaching to crews and customers.
We ARe Safety Focused.
At AWP Safety, every team member is looking out for the well-being of each other, our customers, and the communities we protect. The AWP Safety team supports a collective goal by agreeing to think, practice and support safety every day in everything that we do.
To support this, each AWP Safety facility has a group of team members who volunteer as a Safety Committee and take an active role in improving the safety of their team. The Safety Committee organizes monthly mandatory meetings for all team members to attend and participate in.
Safety is a focus at every level of our organization, and AWP Safety is committed to continuous improvement of our Safety Programs. Drawing on both data and experience, we invest in safety innovations that keep you and your communities moving forward.

We Ensure Safety On Site.
As part of the company’s Commitment to Safety, AWP Safety protects its clients with significant liability coverage on every project.
In addition, every team member is accountable for a safe project execution for our customers. Local facility managers are directly responsible for local operations, personnel, and project quality; and AWP Safety crews continuously interact with customer crews to ensure needs are met and people are safe.
To ensure we maintain the level of safety we expect across all projects, our facility managers conduct unannounced end to end job site inspections. Inspections confirm every crew and every work zone is safe and compliant, and identify any opportunities for improvement. If your project is selected, we also provide you with transparent reporting of all inspection results.
