Commitment to Safety

Phillips Hardy Inc. considers no phase of operation or administration to be of greater importance than providing a safe workplace for our employees, and so we have developed and implemented a mandatory Safety Program which includes training, reporting, and oversight. We recognize that success on the job site is a direct result of the efforts of our team and nothing is more important than keeping them safe. To ensure the safety of our employees, we have designated Dwayne Kennedy as Safety Manager to oversee safety training and procedure.

At Phillips Hardy, SAFETY is our R-O-U-T-I-N-E:

Observation Cards
Utility Awareness
Tool Inspections
Injury Prevention
Near-Miss Education
Equipment Protection

Lee Hardy, President

By incorporating these practices into our daily ROUTINE – we ensure a safe workplace for everyone.


Key components to our Safety Program include:


Safety Observation Program

As a part of our comprehensive Safety Program, we offer incentives for our superintendents and field employees through a Safety Observation Program with the goal of instilling a safety awareness throughout our team with zero injuries, zero equipment or property damage and zero utility incidents.

Toolbox Talks and Daily Flex & Stretch

We utilize periodic Toolbox Talks on our job sites as an avenue to remind employees of proper safety procedures, discuss safety issues specific to the job site they’re working on, and to share good practice tips amongst the crew and to address any safety concerns.

Regular inspection and oversight

Jobsite safety inspections occur at routine intervals and a company Safety Committee meets regularly to review findings and mitigate any potential safety concerns.

Annual Safety Meeting and Training

Each year, foremen and superintendents meet with the company Safety Manager and owners discuss safety topics, reflect on past performance, and review best safety practices.


Job Specific Safety Plan

Each project is different and can present new safety challenges. To ensure we are prepared to complete a project safely, we develop a job-specific safety plan which complies with not only contract-specific safety requirements but OSHA guidelines as well.

Value Engineering

Helping our customers maximize their profits begins early in the project – long before a bucket of dirt is moved. We know that to deliver projects on time and on budget, we must leverage our expertise and offer innovative solutions in order to provide added value to our customers. We consult with project owners, engineers, subcontractors and suppliers to evaluate the original plan and offer suggestions that may save time and money.

An example of such innovation is featured in our work on the Missouri Department of Transportation’s (MoDOT) Route 470 Project in Jackson County, MO. Read more about how we were able to deliver innovation to bridge infrastructure with Helix Micro Rebar here.
