Our safety record is no accident.

Employee, client, and community safety comes first in everything we do at Nabholz. Our “zero-incident philosophy” is more than just a goal. It’s a commitment based on our moral obligation to ensure that everyone who comes into contact with our jobsites returns home in the same healthy condition in which they arrived.

Nabholz’ safety program has earned two national awards from the United States Department of Labor. We have achieved Level One Status in the AGC-OSHA Partnership program, which recognizes our safety performance record and leadership in protecting the lives and health of our team members. This exceptional safety record is due to the effort and commitment of all employees, and the benefits extend to everyone involved, including our clients.

For 2015, Nabholz' Total Recordable Incident Rate was 66% lower than the industry average.

Commitments to Live By (C2LB)

Nabholz’ Commitments to Live By (C2LB) safety program was launched in 2015 as a comprehensive effort to achieve ZERO incidents by identifying and confronting head-on 12 high-risk activities that can lead to serious injuries on job sites. C2LB is a full on blitz–videos, posters, hardhat stickers, toolbox talks, wristbands, flip books, and more–all distributed to our team on a continuing basis. What’s more, we’ve made it personal–our team members sign the following commitment to stay safe in their work:

I commit to staying alive today, tomorrow, and throughout this project. ​I mak​e this commitment because my life matters to my family, to my friends, and to me.
