SAFETY AND QUALITY CONTROL will always be a top priority for all levels of management, supervision, and workers in the field. Safety and quality control will not be sacrificed for schedule, cost, or production. The project superintendent and lead foreman will review and inspect the work-in-progress to assure this required principle is found in the quality of construction and materials used.
