T.J. Wies Contracting, Inc.
Saint Louis, MO
Here is what a TJ Wies employee says about the company’s safety culture:
“In construction, one word we hear from the very beginning is ‘production.’ You must be getting things done quickly for the company to be profitable. I will never forget hearing the company owner for the first time when he was speaking at a company safety meeting. He said, ‘Don’t ever do anything unsafe to help me make a dollar. Get the right equipment for the job, and get it done safely.’ Tim Wies is very invested in our safety on the job, and I know that is a huge reason for everyone being so bought in. The safety culture at this company is second to none and we all know it.”
