At The Shaw Group, the safety of our employees and everyone in the workplace is paramount in everything we do. 


Striving to live up to our Motto: No one will be hurt today or tomorrow, developing and following safety rules is a very important part of achieving our safety vision of Zero injuries and illnesses.


Our new Cardinal Safety Rule program is being introduced to emphasize the importance of working safely during high-risk activities so you and your co workers will return home safely to your families at the end of the day.

While following ALL safety rules is very important to ensure our safety, Cardinal Safety Rules are rules applied to high-risk activities that if not followed properly, could result in serious injury or death. 


For that reason, there is zero tolerance to non-compliance with these rules and failure to comply with them, make the offender subject to a minimum of immediate suspension, and may result in dismissal following an investigation.
