Safety

At AMS “Zero Accident” is more than just a statement. It is a reality.

At AMS Mechanical, we believe safety comes first, and we make safety the responsibility of every employee. Through continuous education and training, all AMS employees take responsibility for their individual safety and the safety of their coworkers. Project Management, Shop, and field personnel along with all AMS Leadership are actively involved as a team to prevent accidents and demonstrate safety excellence through intervention and personal example.

Our CORE Values – Safety, Excellence, Integrity, People, and Stewardship – motivate our movements and confirm that safety is core to how we operate. Our Zero Accident Statement is more than words, it guides the conduct of employees and contractors working on our job sites. AMS is committed to the philosophy and practice of achieving and sustaining an accident-free work environment.

Occupational safety and health is vital to the dignity of work. ~ Juan Somavia
