Safety

At ACECO, workplace and worker safety are our highest priorities.

ACECO follows a stringent corporate safety program.  In many cases it exceeds the requirements of the contractors, owners, and agencies for which we work.  Our safety program involves training new hires, re-training existing workers, updating and revising safety standards, implementing procedures to comply with new regulations, and instilling a culture of safety at every level of the company.

As a result of our leading practices, ACECO has won numerous safety awards and repeated commendations from customers.  Our highly competitive interstate Experience Modification Rating (EMR) allows us to provide our clients one of the highest-quality insurance and boding programs in the industry.  The company’s outstanding EMR records as well as a number of safety awards reflect our continuous dedication to excellence in this essential area.
