Award-winning 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.



Recently, Messer took second in the Associated General Contractors of America’s Construction Safety Excellence Awards, competing in the 2.5 million or more work hours division. Messer has been a finalist in the CSEA three times in five years and a Build America winner five times in eight years. This means when you work with Messer, you are working with one of the safest firms in the nation, year after year.

Construction Safety Week

Reinforcing our safety best practices and recognizing all that our teams do to protect each other on our jobsites through stand-downs, toolbox talks, demonstrations, training, trivia, giveaways, appreciation meals and more.

Messer's management has been wonderful

with notifying me of project completion and having me perform a walk through prior to my infection control commissioning. It's very important that the construction site has been appropriately cleaned before any of our patients use that area, and Messer is well aware of that. All of their associates have proven to me that they take safety seriously, and I can't thank them enough for that. I have always enjoyed working with Messer associates and they've shown me that safety and infection prevention are high priorities on their list. For that I am very grateful."
