Safety & Awards

Health, Safety, and Our Work Environment

GH Phipps has long recognized that maintaining safe job sites is our most important duty. Our top priority: assuring the safety of our employees, our subcontractors’ employees, our clients, and their guests. This value is evident in everything we do, particularly in how we approach construction.

We believe in safety first. All employees receive the training they need in order to complete their job safely.

Safety encompasses the health of our employees, which trickles down to the environment in which we work. Every GH Phipps employee receives regular safety training and ongoing training related to the unique aspects of each job they are assigned. We realize exceptional owners prefer contractors who have superior safety records – indicative of a company’s dedication to controlling quality and costs by providing a productive atmosphere – and these are the owners we wish to work with.

Our field supervisors are CPR and First-Aid Certified. Safety instructions and rules of conduct are written into each subcontract, and our safety requirements are reviewed with each subcontractor prior to awarding contracts. We use hardhat stickers and code-of-conduct cards as a helpful reminder to all team members.

GH Phipps works with an independent third party to maintain compliance with federal, state, and municipal stormwater regulations. We have been a member of the Association of General Contractors (AGC) Colorado’s Stormwater Excellence Program for several years.

We also work in conjunction with third-party environmental consultants to conform to federal, state, and municipal codes that govern regulated building materials. We have internal safety protocols to identify and safely control various environmental hazards.

We are a general contractor self-performing work. Our track record for safety performance is excellent.
