A Culture of Safety

Safety by Choice, Not by Chance

Our people are our first priority, and our concern for people’s wellbeing extends to our clients, partners, contractors, and the public. We are committed to providing a safe and healthy workplace for all our employees and supporting them with the tools and training they need to do their work in the safest possible way.

Placing the highest value on the welfare of the individual

Our goal is to eliminate foreseeable hazards in order to maintain a safe and healthy work environment. We pledge to place the safety and well-being of our employees first and to embody honesty and integrity in the pursuit of our vision.

Instilling a sense of personal commitment to safety

Our commitment to safety requires working in partnership with one another and our clients. While leadership’s role is critical, everyone must be connected to and have personal value for creating a safe and healthy work environment. We seek employee participation while integrating our client’s requirements and expectations.

Built on a philosophy that safety is a core value rather than a priority, Woodard & Curran’s safety culture begins at the highest level and strives to engage and empower all of our employees to work and advocate for their safety and the safety of those around them.

Why We Work Safe

We make safety our top priority

Everyone here has so much to offer that committing to a safe workplace is an easy choice. It allows us to share our passions, tell our stories, and do great work every day.


Award-winning programs

Our people and projects have received numerous awards for safety programs and practices, including the Safety Leadership Award, Corporate Safety Award, Fleet Safety Award, and Outstanding Lost Time Prevention Award from the United Safety Council; The Operator Safety Award from the New England Water Environment Association; Safety Awards from the Florida Water Pollution Control Operators Association; the Safety Survey Award from the Missouri Water Environment Association; and the Burke Safety Award from the New England Water Environment Association.

Going beyond “what” the safety program is and instead remembering “why” we have a safety program is what, to me, embodies who we are.
