Safe is the Star Way

Safety is much more than having a documentable program—it’s an attitude. At Star, we believe safe working environments are a necessity and a priority. So we go beyond compliance. We expect all of our employees to be safety conscious and develop worksites that are evidence of that.

Every employee must pledge to abide by the guidelines set forth in the Star Excavating Safety Program. It includes:

  • Safety orientation for new employees
  • Monthly safety meetings
  • Safety video presentations
  • On-site “toolbox talks”
  • OSHA training sessions
    • 30-hour
    • 10-hour
  • MSHA training sessions
    • 24-hour
    • 8-hour
  • First aid and CPR
  • Competent person training
  • Confined space training
  • General hazmat training
  • Silica awareness training
  • Guest speaker lectures on safety procedures

As a testament to our commitment to safety, we have an exceptional no lost time injury record and have received numerous awards over the years, including:

Builders and Contractors Association (BCA)

  • Safety Excellence Award: Top in Category
  • Safety Excellence Award: Zero Lost Time

Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC)

  • Safety Training and Evaluation Process (STEP)

Star and our employees hold various certifications and credentials, so you’ll always have an expert on your project.

Looking up

Star has been a respected ABC member for years. I would highly recommend them.”
