A Culture of Safety

WENCO Construction Company’s Safety Program

WENCO Construction has a full-time safety director to manage the WENCO Safety System. Safety is the forefront of WENCO’s operations. Safety flows from the top down with all employees aware and focusing on the safety of all projects no matter the size. Field Employees receive site specific training as well as continuing education training throughout their career. WENCO is actively involved in multiple peer safety counsels and in the local area high school vocational programs to prepare the future workforce. WENCO employs an authorized OSHA outreach trainer to keep the workforce up to date on current OSHA education, changes, and enforcement policies. WENCO’s focus is on the safety and wellbeing of the client, public, and employees.

WENCO’s safety program is a member of the STEP Safety Management System and recognized through the ISNetworld (www.isnetworld.com) prequalification processes, allowing WENCO to perform work for companies that go above and beyond basic safety rules. These organizations are global resources for connecting corporations with safe, reliable contractors and suppliers. Our membership has provided a significant platform to showcase our construction capabilities and dedication to Health and Safety standards. It provides a reliable way for our clients to review our environmental health and safety programs against current regulations and protocols, ensuring a high level of compliance and continued customer service. 

WENCO has an approved State of Ohio Drug Free Workplace Program and credit rated with the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation.

The “Safety Rules!” concept pioneered and practiced for years by WENCO is a key element to the company’s success. WENCO’s safety director performs regular unannounced site visits to ensure that safety remains at the forefront. This allows for additional training and direction for individual workers to ensure safety guidelines and regulations are followed.

WENCO is an Equal Opportunity Employer. It is the policy of WENCO to in no way discriminate against applicants or employees with regard to recruiting, hiring, advancement, compensation and other conditions of employment based upon age, race, color, religion, sex, marital status, national origin, veteran status or non-job-related handicap or disability.
At WENCO, creating a healthy and safe work environment for all employees is our top priority when supplying superior construction services to our clients.
