Health, Safety, Security & Environment

SAFETY IS FIRST & FOREMOST IN EVERYTHING THAT WE DO
Recognized as a national leader, Starcon is committed to ensuring the health and safety of our team. This commitment includes our journey to Beyond Zero – creating an environment where our team members go home in better condition than they arrived at work; healthier, more educated, and able to influence the people around them. As leaders, Starcon team members continually reinforce the value of taking care of personal health, looking out for fellow team members, and not taking or accepting unnecessary risks. This is Starcon’s moral obligation. It is how we choose to work. It is a value instead of a priority.

Starcon believes safety drives productivity. Safety is the prime workplace factor to mitigate exposure wherever possible, eliminate at-risk behavior and experience beyond zero results on each project site; every team member has a moral right to an injury-free workplace. Utilizing the behavior-based safety process team members are provided with the opportunity to participate in safety improvement by identifying both safe and at-risk behaviors every day.
Starcon has received more than 160 prestigious awards over the last 10 years for our excellent programs and performance, including:
  • ABC National Safety Excellence Awards
  • CURT Excellence Awards
  • HBR Best in Class Awards
  • AFPM Awards

Quality Assurance / Quality Control (QA/QC)

Our exceptional team provides quality service through programs to pro-actively plan, measure and address non-conformance.
