J.F.Wilkerson Contracting has always strived to provide a safe and secure workplace for our employees. Our Safety Motto for 2019 is:
"SAFETY IS EVERYONE'S JOB"
Safety on the jobsites is accomplished in a variety of ways. Daily and weekly Safety Meetings are facilitated by the Foremen. Safety Reports are given at the weekly Management Meetings. "Safety Days" are all day Safety Events held periodically.
Subcontractors are invited and encouraged to attend all Safety Events and Training Opportunities.
