Safety & Training

Our goal is to provide the most safety-conscious and experienced personnel for your project. We pride ourselves on our employees training, professionalism, and expertise in the areas of excavation work and utility system installations.

American Excavating employees receive top quality training, including training in the use of Trimble GPS surveying equipment, annual MSHA trainings, confined space, competent person, and certified flagger training.


American Excavating Corp. prides itself on proper training and safety procedures. All AEC employees receive federally required OSHA training, as well as MSHA training when applicable. Safety is continuously being reinforced by our superintendents during required on-site Toolbox Safety Meetings conducted on a weekly basis.

American Excavating Corp. is committed to providing a safe working environment for everyone. We encourage both management and labor to participate in achieving our safety goals. Our active safety committee consists of both employee representatives as well as members of management, and membership is rotated periodically. Accident prevention is the responsibility of all AEC employees and therefore, it is the policy of this company to:

  • Comply with all federal, state and local construction laws and regulations.
  • Apply good sense and safety practices to all jobs, as dictated by conditions and circumstances.
  • Protect the public from hazards which may result from our operation.

Our focus on safety is of the utmost importance not only for our own employees, but also for the safety of our subcontractors and the general public.

Commitment to safety is our “Number One” priority.
