Safety is our priority

Pioneer Construction is committed to providing a safe and healthy workplace and jobsites for our employees, subcontractors, and the general public. Our number one priority is for our employees and subcontracting partners to return safely home to their families at the end of each workday.

Our goal is to be accident and violation free on every job. To this end, we implement a rigorous Safety Accountability Program that is customized specifically for each project and incorporated into bid documents, sub-contractor agreements, and training.

The Associated Builders and Contractors recently acknowledged our efforts by awarding Pioneer Construction with the Construction Safety Award of Excellence. While proud of this accomplishment, we understand that safety is an ongoing cultural mission.
