Safety First

ZTEX's management commits the necessary staff, time and financial resources to ensure that all employees, and everyone on the work site is protected from injury and/or illness hazards. In fact, the entire ZTEX team, including management and hourly employees, are encouraged to collaborate by sharing their observations, concerns, and ideas on how ZTEX can best maintain its employee safety policies. This continual process ensures that all employees understand, follow, and support the safety policies.

Safety and health is the top priority for every employee while performing any operation or activity. ZTEX's Health and Safety Program is compliant with OSHA standards and safety meetings are conducted by ZTEX's safety officer every week at all job sites. In addition, all project managers and superintendents are OSHA certified.

Drug and Alcohol Policy


ZTEX has a comprehensive Drug & Alcohol Policy that complies with FMCSA and DOT regulations. ZTEX employs a third party consortium to oversee the Drug & Alcohol program but remains involved in every aspect of its execution. And because safety is ZTEX's top concern, all employees are required to be tested as a condition to being hired.
