Achievements

  • OSHA 30 Certifications Maintained by all Supervisors:
    Our commitment to safety starts with the board of directors and flows down to every employee. The protection of our employees, our customers and subcontractors is the first consideration for all aspects of our daily activities and business decisions. Safety is paramount to what we do when we work on a project, therefore all supervisors and most field employees maintain the OSHA 30 certification.

    Kroeschell doubles the industry norm of one safety professional for every 100 employees. This allows our safety department to proactively provide training, ensures compliance, perform safety audits, protect our employees and customers, undertake incident investigations and discover best practices that help to avoid future incidents.
