SAFETY FIRST

At Alpha, we believe that all injuries are preventable. That's why safety is integrated into every activity. If a task cannot be completed safely, it will not be performed. Every person has a responsibility not only for their own safety but for the safety of those around them. You'll find every level of our organization is proactive in implementing safety processes that promote a safe and healthy environment. Together, we can achieve our goal of a total health and safety culture.
