Safety

Our Core Principles

A healthy, safe work environment: that is Desert Fire Protection’s first priority. Our team understands the importance of maintaining a safe workplace and we strive to keep our workplace injury- and accident-free.

Safety is incorporated into every part of our planning. Our team will first identify job-specific hazards and
provide a hazard mitigation strategy for the highest risk activities. This is not a static list – risks change daily. Communicating with owners, contractors and the subcontractor team is key in benefiting the entire project.
