Relentless About Safety

Relentless About Safety

At MKD, safety is at the center of our culture. We hold the safety and health of our team members and clients at the core of our value system.

We’re proactive about safety

From daily safety huddles to weekly safety meetings, we are relentlessly proactive in our goal of zero injuries. We believe that every safety-related incident is preventable. Our EMR is 0.67.

It’s not enough to react after an accident has resulted in a costly delay of work, an injury, or worse. We pro-actively plan for and assess each situation for potential safety concerns through Job Safety Evaluations and task-specific Job Safety Analyses, which are completed by each team member – for each task.

Your techs who show up at my facility always have their PPE with them and they automatically put it on when they start working. I’ve been working for 38 years and your company is the only one I can say that about.

-Bill Kalas, AGI Media
