Commitment to Safety

The safety of our employees, subcontractors, customers, and the public are the top priority in everything we do at Fred Smith Company. We staff a Safety Team that is involved in the intricate details of each construction project to establish a mindset that thinks about safety first—safely delivering excellence in construction to our customers and the public.

“A culture is made up of Core values from the top to the bottom of a team, group, company or society. At FSC Safety is a Core value and Everyone’s responsibility. If you see it you own it.”
