Merit Construction Northwest

Merit Construction Northwest believes that everyone — from the newest worker on the job to the principal — should be equally responsible for safety.

The company stresses the importance of the “See Something, Say Something” concept so that any member, no matter their position, can feel at liberty to address safety concerns. This open communication allows for more accountability for each and every individual, and helps to keep not only Merit’s crew members, but everyone on the jobsite, safe.

To continue pursuing excellence in safety, Merit stays up to date with the latest safety education and attends annual Construction Safety Day events. Any event the company can attend that opens the safety conversation and allows for reflection and application is of value.

Merit believes that all employees have the right to derive personal satisfaction from their job, and preventing occupational injury or illness is so important to this belief that it will be given top priority at all times.

The company will continue its tradition of excellence in safety and hold itself accountable to only the highest standards.
