Our Safety Program

Poole & Kent is dedicated to providing a safe and healthy work environment. Having been in the construction business for over half a century, Poole & Kent knows success is only attained by sending each and every employee home to their family at the end of each workday without injury or illness.

Training and Education

The commercial construction industry has evolved dramatically since the start of our business in 1947; technology has enabled this industry to accelerate in many areas including safety. As a result, we have been able to quickly and efficiently educate and train each employee on specific safety topics such as:

  • Confined space
  • Aerial lift
  • Fall protection
  • Personal protective equipment
  • CPR
  • Defensive driving
  • Power tool safety training

Safety Culture

Poole & Kent recognizes safe work practices are not just a "procedure," but also a behavioral-based practice. The team at Poole & Kent knows in order to remain successful, each employee, from upper management to the field, has to recognize performing work safely is a personal responsibility. Poole & Kent strives for employees to make safety a habit and part of daily work routines.
