Our company and its History continued
Safety
Past, Present, and Future - Over the past fifty years Shaw & Sons has had a stellar safety record; the company has never experienced serious injury to an employee or
loss of life.

Aside from having equipment regularly serviced and in excellent condition, every Shaw employee has carte blanch to purchase to replace, any damaged power, pneumatic or hand tools and related items along with new items such as respirators, eye protection, hardhats, safety vests etc. with no questions asked.

Our foremen are all CPR and First Aid certified along with Respiratory Protection, OSHA, Highreach and Forklift certifications. Safety Inspections, Hazard Assessment and Tool Box Safety talks are also a big part of Shaw & Sons weekly regimen in order to keep Safety #1 in our employee’s minds. Our people not only watch out for public safety but also for all jobsite personnel as well.

Safety through Innovation
Our patented high-rise deck pour system is not
only cost efficient, but it also governs the proper
net thickness and load yields floor after floor,
resulting in a safer building.

and concrete and can cause injuries to workers
Speed Dowel
Our world renown speed doweling system works year
after year to prevent vertical concrete displace-
ment or the typical ‘tripping’ hazards found
with non-doweled concrete. It also reduces
physical labor (and worker’s comp insurance
claims) with a simple part. Speed Dowel™
was designed by Ron and Lee Shaw with safety
in mind.
