Safety

McKnight Construction Co. is committed to maintaining safe and healthful work places and to protecting the public against any potential hazards caused by our operations. It is our goal to have projects with no accidents and a positive safety climate on each job site. We believe that accidents are preventable and each of us must actively and continuously participate in maintaining safe work places and abating hazards before they arise.

It is McKnight Construction Co. Inc. policy to strive for the safe performance of all of our work, and we make safety an integral part of our operations. Chief Safety Officer Chris Wright is working toward a Bachelor of Science degree in Occupational Safety and Health from Eastern Kentucky University and has completed OSHA 500 Trainer Course in Occupational Safety & Health for construction. Equipped with his OSHA 500 certification, Chris trains all field superintendents and quality control personnel to understand the complexity and necessity of a safe job site. Mr. Wright visits each project site on a regular basis to ensure that we are not only complying with regulatory standards, but that every activity is conducted in the safest way possible. We are proud to maintain a strong Recordable Incident Rate far below industry standards.
