Safety Always Culture

At Knik Construction, safety is a core value. We have developed a company-wide culture and commitment that every employee arrives at work with the training and knowledge to return home safely at the end of the day. Each employee – whether laborer, foreman, superintendent, or president – shares the responsibility of putting our safety protocols into practice on the job.

We provide heavy construction services in some of the most challenging environments, and we’ve been doing it safely for more than 50 years. All Knik employees work by these guiding principles:

Know the day’s work plan

Notice safety issues and notify

Initiate safe work practices

Keep yourself and your team safe

”I will not get hurt today. That is my pledge

Our goal every day is zero accidents. With daily safety meetings we keep our people aware of issues and hazards and encourage discussions of ways to improve our programs.
