Safety & Certifications

Cal Empire Engineering is dedicated to keeping all of our employees safe and we know this doesn't happen by accident.  We have fostered a positive safety culture and implemented a safety program to maximize the way we communicate about, and develop safe work practices.


Our safety management system includes:

  • Daily worksite "tailgate" meetings to discuss the upcoming work functions to be performed and identify any potential safety hazards associated with those functions Worksite audits conducted by one of our trained safety coordinators
  • Weekly safety meetings that cover specific industry related topics as well as a quarterly "All- hands" meeting to review/ discuss all safety incidents and accidents that may have occurred and cover additional safety training items.


We understand that continuous safety training is the key to developing a true safety mindset.

All of our employees are minimally trained in the following:

  • OSHA 30 Hour Training
  • HAZWOPER Training
  • First Aid and CPR
  • Competent Person Training
  • Railroad Safety Training
  • ​Radio Frequency Training


We have also have in our employ a full-time Safety Director to provide comprehensive education and support.  Our number one priority is for every one of our employees to return home safely every day.
