Safety Program

We work safely, or we don’t work at all.

WGI's Commitment To Safety

“We demand a culture where every one of our associates is responsible for and accountable to each other to stop any unsafe act or condition in our work environments.”

Gregory Sauter, President

Safety is one of our Core Values, so we live it every single day.

WGI strives for a zero-harm, no-injuries workplace as our primary goal at every location at which we work. WGI is committed to providing our associate team members with a safe and healthy work environment. Our commitment to safety includes our associates, customers, and those within the communities in which we work.

Our commitment is not only a compliance-oriented approach to safety; we are committed to a culture of safety and continuous improvement; we each take personal responsibility for our safety and the safety of our coworkers. Every day, WGI’s ultimate safety ambition is a zero-harm, no-injuries workplace.

Every job site injury is preventable

Every WGI Associate is encouraged to follow these primary actions to improve our safety culture while helping us achieve a zero-harm workplace:

  • Accept responsibility to comply with WGI safety procedures established for each associate’s safety and health, as well as their co-workers
  • Assist our management team by having a positive and proactive attitude toward workplace safety
  • Actively suggest improvements to supervisors in the way we work and to identify and eliminate workplace hazards
  • Promptly report unsafe or unhealthy conditions to supervisors and help identify all corrective actions to safely eliminate or correct hazards
  • Be a lookout for the safety of co-workers. Help others to avoid being at risk. Use our “WGI Stop Work Authority” to pause our work and then find a safer way to perform the job or task
  • Promptly report all work-related near misses and any injuries to supervisors, and
  • Always perform the job to the safest possible extent

Our Commitment To Safety

We believe all accidents are preventable and all hazards controllable. Working safely is a condition of employment at WGI. Safety is everyone’s responsibility. All associates are trained to safely perform their jobs prior to being assigned the task."
