High Standards for Our People

Our human resources department maintains a current listing of pre-qualified employees with their skill test results. All new employees are drug tested for pre-employment and randomly tested throughout their employment history with H&S Constructors. Every employee is evaluated through a skill craft assessment test to ensure they are qualified for their position and capable of the productivity you expect at your job site. All new employees must pass a physical fitness test (HPE/Human Performance Evaluation) to ensure they are physically able to perform their jobs once they reach the field.

To attract and retain the best candidates, we offer an employee benefits package that includes uniforms, vacation, paid jury duty, one hour of pay to vote, 401K, hospitalization, and safety incentives.

Uncompromising Standards for Safety

The H&S Constructors Safety Department maintains and enforces leading-edge safety practices. Our excellent record of performance includes regular safety awards and we have attained VPP status at multiple customer sites.

All incidents and/or accidents are reviewed by the President or Vice-President of the company, the involved employee, his or her supervisor, and their construction manager responsible for the project.

The H&S Constructors Safety Director reports directly to the Division Manager and the owners of the company. We stress the importance of Individual responsibility to all employees to ensure active participation in our safety program. Job safety meetings (toolbox safety meetings) are held daily to ensure everyone is aware of their tasks. Employees must also complete a safety execution plan (JSA) prior to the commencement of any work. Safety teams are set up to encourage team-building along with individual commitments. Our supervisors are given goals to reach for additional bonuses. We have received numerous safety awards and we are proud of our employees for achieving consistently excellent results.

Elite Standards for Quality

Our QA/QC department is unrivaled for their qualifications and performance. All of our inspectors are CWI (Certified Welding Inspectors) Level I certified and NACE credentials are maintained for our paint yard inspections. Our inspectors are thoroughly knowledgeable in ASME and API code requirements. Our inspectors are also well-versed in ACI (American Concrete Institute) guidelines. Combining our inspectors’ knowledge of applicable codes and their ability to work with field personnel to enhance quality is integral to successful projects.

Ultimately, our goals are your goals: (1) to satisfy all your expectations, and (2) to perform safe, top-quality work. Achieving these goals project after project takes a culture of excellence that is shared by every person in our company and reflected in their attitudes and actions each day on the job.
