"Our supervisors work with the same crew day in and day out to maintain consistency, continuity, and teamwork to achieve the best possible outcome on all projects," Fitchett said. ey also have a program set up for growth within the company, so someone who started out as a laborer can poten- tially end up running his or her own team down the line. On jobs with this many mobilizations, those 5-person teams combine to fill up the 20 people needed to complete the work. Another thing that's a company-wide policy is follow- ing safety protocols. In addition to daily toolbox talks, the crew wore personal protective equipment (PPE), including eyewear, 3M dust masks, and steel-toed boots, which came from a local boot distributor called Michigan Industrial Shoe. "We supply them with uniforms, PPE, and tools so when they show up on jobsites, they've got everything they need," Fitchett explained.
