Lives for Over
Developing and maintaining a safe and effective flow of people and vehicles throughout a work site is critical to the well being of the work crew and the public. Efficient traffic flow also aids the customer's desire for prompt and cost effective project completion. At W.D. Wright, our team of safety coordinators is able to effectively plan a job site's work flow to ensure that a safe and economical traffic pattern is achieved before project commencement.
As members of the American Traffic Safety Services Association (ATSSA) we train our flaggers to exceed the acceptable industry standards. Our standard flagging operation consists of two traffic control technicians who protect your project personnel by setting up, managing, monitoring, and tearing down your work zone. We give your workers a safe area to operate while providing safe, courteous, and easy to follow guidance to motorists.
With more than 2,000 team members, a fleet of over 1,000 vehicles, and offices in various states, at Wrights we have the people and equipment to fill your traffic control needs.
While quality and productivity are our goals, they will never take precedence over the safety of our personnel or work sites. Our commitment to safety extends from our field members to our entire team of subcontractors, suppliers and vendors we work with. Everyone that works on our projects must adopt and work with-in our Safety Program. From executive management down, we are committed to the safety of our employees, subcontractors, clients, and the general public we protect each day.
At Wrights we believe in empowering our team by training them to identify critical work place hazards they may encounter while on the job. All aspects of our safety program revolve around our employees being able to identify workplace hazards that they are in contact with each day and arming them with the tools and knowledge to mitigate these risks to effectively work safely. All of our staff are trained with the required OSHA specific training, ATSSA Training's, and state specific MUTCD standards and regulations. Our work force is drug free and our policies strictly prohibit any substance that could affect or alter an employee’s ability to perform his or her work safely.
As we continue to grow as a company, we strive to expand our safety policies and programs to grow and adapt as well. With monthly safety committee meetings and refresher training, we are constantly improving and reflecting on the lessons we learn as a company. Our policies allow us to provide a safe working environment for our employees, subcontractors, clients, general public, and the other contractors we work with each day and allow us to adjust to the site specific safety programs we encounter.
