As our full-time Safety Director, Christopher Long is responsible for creating and maintaining a safe workplace for Keystruct employees, subcontractors, customers, and the public. He plans and develops our corporate safety, health, and environmental protection functions.
Chris believes that safety is everyone’s responsibility, and he implements programs and policies to achieve that goal. He develops site specific safety plans, conducts jobsite safety audits and inspections, oversees the Keystruct Safety Committee, and conducts safety training topics that cover a wide range of OSHA/MSHA standards. Chris focuses every day on promoting safety policies designed to get everyone home safely at the end of each work day.
