A Foundation Built on Safety
We seek to cultivate a culture of safety making it a part of our everyday process, not just a box to check. On-site employee safety as well as the safety of the general public is of utmost importance to our organization. We prepare every employee with safety training across multiple formats so they have the knowledge they need to go home safe each day.
Our employees receive a vast amount of personal protective equipment (PPE) at the start of their employment journey with our company. Our management team is always here to replace PPE items if needed. There are times when job-sites have special conditions that requires additional safety planning and equipment, and we have you covered. At Kelpe Contracting, we have the internal resources and equipment to provide working solutions for almost any safety scenario.

Safety isn’t something we hope to achieve, it’s something we work to guarantee. We strive to continually ensure the safety of our staff, and our job-sites.
In support of our mission, Kelpe Contracting engages in a multifaceted approach to workplace safety and education, providing ongoing training and regular safety checks to supplement and surpass local union and bylaw requirements.
