In Safety First.
A strong commitment to the safety and integrity of the general public, our own employees and our associated subcontractors is the supreme responsibility of all levels of our organization.
Vehicle accidents can cause serious injury and undue hardship on our employees and their families. It is the policy of Marek to achieve the greatest practical freedom from accidents and to ensure that every employee is provided safe and healthful working conditions. The Marek fleet safety program was established to reduce and prevent accidents. We will, as always, comply with all applicable regulations and expect all drivers to drive safely and obey traffic laws. Safety is a priority. Our success depends on our driving workforce.

YES! And at the same time too
Equipment plays an important role in the completion of our projects and understanding the capabilities and safety operation depends on a well trained workforce. We offer the following training to our employees.
- Elevating Work Platforms
- Power Industrial Trucks
- Power Actuated Tools

At Marek we don’t rely on training, we go the extra mile and continue to monitor and test our workforce on a daily basis, maintaining the highest safety awareness possible. Therefore we develop Quick Safety Guides that our employees can rely on when questions arise. The QG’s are reference materials from equipment to our very own safety programs.
