“Safety is a full-time job – don’t make it a part-time practice!”

Smith Tank & Steel, Inc. has one of the best safety records in the industry. The owners and managers believe that without a strong safety program we would not be able to compete in the industry as a world-class competitor. Our training is intense and informative. Our managers, supervisors, foreman, and pushers go through extensive training in CPR, first aid, crane, rigging, HAZCOM, heat stress, and confine space permitting are just a few of the classes and training they go through on a yearly basis; plus any specific training required by the client.

We stress zero incidents and have proven this for several years and continue to maintain this goal. We believe if safety is a leader then quality and productivity will follow.
