Shop Employees at PT&P Operating Machinery with OSHA Compliant Safety Guards
Since 2006, we have increased our safety staff from two to five people. With over 35 years of combined safety experience, our safety professionals are prepared to continuously improve and further solidify our efforts and dedication to safety.
At PT&P, we know that all injuries can be prevented. That’s why we hold weekly safety tip meetings and monthly supervisor safety meetings to ensure that all employees are reminded often of the high value that we place on workplace safety as well as their responsibility of contributing to the success of safety in our company.
