At EDA Contractors, safety is engrained in everything we do. We understand that perception is everything and safety should be seen as a resource, not an enemy. Our safety team is organized geographically and is focused on improving the way we train our employees and staying on top of new safety trends. By emphasizing the importance of safety in EDA's everyday work, our safety department is able to work collaboratively with field employees, rather than against them.


Meet Our Safety Team

Our safety team is structured with safety coordinators who are responsible for overseeing the individual regions where EDA completes work. Their jobs include observing jobsites, conducting safety inspections, and helping ensure our employees return home safely each night. By structuring our safety department this way, our employees are able to form a relationship with the safety professional in their region, and have one reliable point of contact for all safety-related questions and concerns. 


In this series, we deconstruct new safety trends and how EDA goes above and beyond to ensure that our workers get home safely each night. From enhanced trainings, to perfecting practices, we have gone to great lengths to  keep safety at the forefront of everything we do.
