At Piedmont Pipe Construction the safety of our employees is our top priority. Our internal safety standards exceed those of OSHA and other regulatory agencies. We want to ensure our employees make it home injury free at the end of every day and we believe in motivating them to strive for safety excellence. We start the process by setting clear safety standards and expectations in our new hire process. All employees are required to attend an extensive safety training course during orientation, before they ever set foot on a job-site.


Our safety training program is constantly evolving to keep up with changing standards and requirements. Some of the highlights of our existing program are:

  • NUCA Confined Space and Competent Person Excavation Safety

  • CPR and Blood Born Pathogens

  • First Aid

  • Quarterly Safety Meetings

  • Weekly Safety Toolbox Talks

  • Daily Stretch and Flex with Pre-Job Safety Discussions.

Building L.I.F.E (Living Injury Free Everyday)

Piedmont Pipe’s safety first philosophy is trademarked as Building L.I.F.E.® (Living Injury Free Everyday). The Building L.I.F.E. approach strives to eliminate all worksite incidents through pre-planning construction activities with safety engagement commencing at project pursuit. These standards along with our policies, mandatory safety inspections and approximately 25 training programs have created the most comprehensive and effective safety organization in the construction industry today. Building L.I.F.E. is supported by four guiding principles:


  1. Injuries are Preventable

  2. Perform a Job Only if it is Safe

  3. Working Safely is a Condition of Employment

  4. Practice and Expect Safe Behavior Everywhere, Every Day.


Standards, Policies and Guidelines

Piedmont Pipe strives to continually improve and identify risk while creating and enforcing the programs to reduce that risk whether through a best practice, new guideline, or policy. This results in a successful track record of bridging the company’s safety standards, with the reality of on-site project operations further supporting and driving the message to all level of field and project staff.

Piedmont Pipe’s support and commitment to safety continues to offer progressive and innovative programs. We are proud to support the Piedmont Pipe family from Building L.I.F.E. to Living LIFE.
