Safety: 100% Commitment without Compromise

Dearborn Mid-West Company continues to take a preventive approach in minimizing the number of work site incidents, including the number of accidents, injuries, illnesses and near misses. This approach is grounded through pre-task planning and pre-employment, pre-shift and topical training throughout the duration of a project. It is DMW’s objective to provide work sites with engineered controls in place that have fully mitigated/eliminated the risk of occupational injury/illness and property damage.

Unsafe working conditions and job practices are inefficient, costly to the workers, their families, the company and our customers. In a nutshell, they are totally unacceptable. Safety awareness starts at the top of the organization through the direction of Jeff Homenik, DMW’s President and CEO and is further enforced through the direction of our Project Management Team and their jobsite Superintendents. DMW will not tolerate unsafe working conditions or unsafe work behaviors and promotes a “safety first” mind-set among all affected personnel.
