In order to provide a safe and healthful work environment, we have established a workplace safety program that is a top priority for Southern Concrete Materials. Through intensive, ongoing training, SCM provides our employees with best practices and reinforcement of guidelines that will help keep us safe at our jobs each and every day. We also strive to keep our workplace fun – through challenges from site to site or through incentive programs to help reward exceptional performance.
SCM values safe and productive teamwork. SCM also realizes that everyone at each division of the company is a vital component to our overall success. We know that we have a tremendous responsibility as stewards not only to our customers and our personal safety – but also to our environment. We understand that the earth that we utilize for our natural resources needs to be protected and maintained in order for us to be true and partners of our own communities and neighborhoods.
We strive to comply fully with all applicable environmental laws and regulations. We have a comprehensive environmental policy that demands regular training for each of our employees and on-going compliance with high-standards. Through continued training, SCM has developed one of the strongest environmental programs in the industry – having been recognized time and again for our dedication to our surrounding habitats.
