Bluff City Materials, Inc. (BCM) believes that safety performance is the first measure of success for every project and that all accidents are preventable. Zero incident performance is our goal on every project - no injuries, no property damage, and no adverse community or environmental impacts. The safety of our staff, others on site, and the surrounding community are priority “one” and will never be compromised for production, profit, or ancillary project goals.

Employee feedback regarding safety is considered extremely important,and we encourage active participation in company safety meetings, work planning, and other safety forums. All project personnel are vested with “Stop Work” authority and all safety observations and suggestions are seriously evaluated. BCM project managers and safety officers follow up continuously to ensure all personnel adhere to corporate and site-specific safety plans and Activity Hazard Analyses (AHAs). This highly effective, behavior-based safety culture is characterized by communications founded on mutual trust, a shared company-wide commitment to safety, proper hazard
identification and implementation of preventive measures.
