In order to provide a safe and healthy working environment for all employees, subcontractors, customers and visitors, Clearwater Construction has established a workplace Safety Management Program. We understand that corporate success depends on the alertness and the personal commitment of all employees to safety.  Clearwater only employs Craft-Specific Union Workers which ensures that every Clearwater employee has a significant level of training and experience in their specific trade.

In addition to the union craft specific training, Clearwater provides training and information to employees about workplace safety and health issues through the use of job site postings, supervisor-employee meetings, tool-box talks, memos, and site visits.

A labor-management safety committee, composed of representatives throughout the organization has been established to help monitor Clearwater’s Safety Management Program and to help facilitate effective communication between employees and management about workplace safety and health issues.



At Clearwater, we truly believe one accident is too many. That is why our company is built on a safety foundation that would match the foundation of any bridge structure we construct.


Our focus is our team members and utilizing our company-specific safety management system to allow everyone to work safely. Our “Work Safe, No One Gets Hurt” culture extends into everything we do.
