Safety is the cornerstone of Tru-Check's values and is fundamental to the success of our company and the projects our customers entrust to us.

We believe the only success worth achieving is success that is built on safety; and we are committed to providing the tools, equipment, training and guidance needed to help Tru-Check's employees work safely every day.

Safety training includes both classroom and field training. We use videos, group discussion, installation manuals, proper use of personal protection equipment (PPE) and tools, standard industry practices, information from the National Safety Council and other sources.

Any employee who fails to meet the Safety Program guidelines will be issued a sequence of verbal and written correction notices.  Any unsafe practices that persist will result in dismissal.
