Working in public right-of-way and in and around live traffic every day requires planning and a diligent approach to safety. In the past five years, Achen-Gardner has installed more than one million lineal feet of wet utilities and more than one million square yards of pavement within the public right-of-way and active traffic environments. Maintaining a safe construction project is our top priority.

Cesar Martinez, Achen-Gardner’s Safety Director, works closely with project superintendents and field crews to provide continuing education on proper procedures required for performing work safely. He also creates project-specific safety plans to accommodate any unique risks. Cesar visits projects regularly and enforces a “zero tolerance” policy, which has resulted in more than one million man-hours worked (2013-2017) without a lost time accident. Achen-Gardner is committed to the safety and health of all workers, clients, and the general public.
