Zero Injury Culture

Messer is committed to creating and maintaining a Zero Injury culture.

We live every day by our core safety values:

  • We believe no job, task or schedule is more important than the health and safety of people on or near our jobsites
  • We are responsible for and take action to ensure our own safety and the safety of those around us
  • We will return every person home to their families safely each day

It is this level of commitment that drives our construction sites to be injury-free and keeps our workers safe.

As a 2020 finalist and award winner in the Construction Safety Excellence Awards (building category, over two million hours), our safety program was recognized among the top three in the country out of 27,000 members of Associated General Contractors.
