Degen Excavating provides a safe working environment for all employees. Our number one priority is the personal health and safety of each and every employee.  We take the extra time to ensure that all required safety measures are met.

Our Policy

We believe that a safe job site begins with a focused and knowledgeable staff who are committed to creating a safe working environment.  Our goal is to prevent accidents and injuries, and we believe that we can achieve this goal with a commitment and effort from each employee. As a policy, we conduct weekly safety meetings (Tool Box Talks) and enforce 100% safety compliance at all times. For more information, consult our member safety data clearing house.
