At C.W. Matthews, protecting our people and the traveling public is the most important measure of our performance. We hold firmly to our conviction that every team member must return home safely at the end of every shift—no exceptions, no excuses. Safety forms the foundation of our company’s success.
Those who are part of C.W. Matthews know our safety culture demands 100% buy-in. Every member of our team is held accountable and responsible for each other’s safety—from the most entry-level position to the company’s President and CEO. We empower everyone, regardless of their position, to be a safety leader by speaking up so that safety is never compromised.
Today, C.W. Matthews is committed to changing the role of safety—not just within our company, but within our industry as a whole. We believe a rising tide raises all ships. To that end, we’re doing all we can to set the standard of safety excellence for others to follow—from safety training that starts on day one, to investing in technologies that help eliminate risks. We are defining what it means to work safely for the next generation of builders.

“I work safe because you never know who you’re inspiring. We all have a greater impact on individuals than we can imagine.”
