Safety is key on any construction site. When it comes to TAS, it is our number one core value. We are always up for the challenge of making every job a safer place for all employees. The company has recently adopted this EFCO form system. This was an opportunity for TAS to enhance its safety program. The second most important thing is communication. We wanted to make sure all lines of communication were open between the supervisors and employees; information needed to be shared about the potential challenges we could face as a team by using this EFCO form system. An atmosphere was created to allow people to feel comfortable and come forward with any insight they might have on how to maintain the highest level of safety. Sometimes people just need that extra nudge to step up and share what they know and that’s what we aim to do at TAS.
