June is National Safety Month but for C. Caramanico & Sons, Inc. being safe is our top priority every month! There is nothing more important than making sure EVERYONE goes home safely to their families every day. Safety is so important that it is our first fundamental of our unique culture, The Caramanico Way.
Good professional landscaping companies will have safety and training programs in place beginning with the hiring process followed by regular safety and training practices.
Why is safety so important for landscape companies?
Being safe is more than just a check list for landscape contractors.
Landscape companies spend a lot of time on the road with trucks, trailers, and heavy loads and operate several different pieces of equipment, all of which increase accident risk factors.
Commercial property owners want their landscaping company to be safe and be aware of potential risks such as ponds or retaining walls. A landscaping company’s safe operation protects properties by minimizing the chance of damaging landscaping, the building, and even vehicles or injuring guests & staff.
