Our number one commitment is the safety of our people, with a goal of zero workplace incidents. Safety is everyone’s first job, ensuring every worker goes home in the same condition as they arrived.

More than process and procedure, safety is a core value thoroughly embedded in Austin’s culture. From senior leadership to each field operation, we work tirelessly to assure safety for all stakeholders. If our employee-owners see an unsafe act, they are empowered to stop work and correct it.

Driving to Zero

To support our goal of zero workplace incidents, Austin Industries maintains a safety record that is one of the best in its industry. Our management team demands uncompromising accountability for safety – it is our company’s benchmark for evaluating job performance and project success.

“At Austin, our number one commitment is to the safety of our people, and our number one goal is zero incidents. Safety is everyone’s first job. That’s why every worker goes home in the same condition as they arrived.”
