Why Safety Matters To Us
WA Patriot’s most important resource is our people and making sure EVERYONE GOES HOME SAFE is our top priority. We take this very seriously, as we know the success of our company and the livelihood of our workers depends on it. Safety matters to us because we have families and friends with whom we want to be able to enjoy the fruits of our hard work. Family vacations, ski trips with friends, celebrating the birth of a child, or simply being able to take your dog for a walk are just some of the reasons we all strive to maintain safe and healthy lifestyles—at work and at home.
Safety is embedded in WA Patriot’s core values. We hold all employees accountable for maintaining a safe work environment and for making sure unsafe conditions are not ignored.
Our approach to safety is a proactive one. Whether it’s providing the latest innovations in Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and fall protection or using safety training to allow our team members to better identify hazards, we’re consistently working on continuous improvements to our safety program. We also participate in the annual Construction Safety Week and OSHA’s National Safety Stand Down to reaffirm our commitment to safe practices with demonstrations, safety training, and morale-boosting activities.
Celebrating Safety Success
WA Patriot takes our safety practices very seriously, and we believe that personal accountability contributes to the success of our team. Our team’s commitment to safety excellence is reflected in the many industry awards we have received in recognition of our culture of safety, with our most recent award being a 2022 AGC of Washington “Safety Excellence” award.
Part of our focus as a construction safety leader includes partnering with organizations like Safety Matters and the AGC of WA who help ensure our practices are meeting industry standards and for continuous learning opportunities for team members.
WA Patriot is a proud member of the AGC Safety Team.
