Safety & Education

Safety & EducationWe take safety seriously. That’s why, in addition to investing in the safest demolition equipment available, we go the extra mile to provide ongoing training and education for all of our employees. We take pride in our status as a commercial and industrial demolition company with an excellent safety track record – and we’re committed to keeping it that way.

Employee Safety

At Elder Demolition, safety is our culture. Our insurance broker, Assurety NW, is a valuable partner in providing educational resources to help us maintain a clean safety record. As a member of Associated General Contractors, we also have direct access to additional safety professionals and resources. Examples of our annual training and certifications include:

  • Full physical evaluation and drug testing for all employees, including annual hearing tests.
  • Annual asbestos, lead awareness and fall protection training for all foremen, operators and laborers.
  • 40-hour HAZWOPER Certification

Hazardous Materials

We’re no stranger to hazardous materials. Our industrial demolition experience includes chemical plants, paper mills and other buildings with chemical and environmental hazards. We’ve worked with a variety of partners specializing in hazardous cleanup, and we maintain an ongoing partnership with Jones Environmental for lead testing, asbestos testing and other environmental services. We’re an EPA lead-certified demolition company, with superintendents trained in hazardous waste emergency response protocol.
