Manson Construction Company – Dredging Contractor

Throughout its safety journey, Manson Construction has upheld the belief that it is, at core, in the people business. Recognizing those who plan, engineer, survey, maintain, operate, administer, manage and build projects, Manson continually defines and refines what it means to be safe at work, announced WEDA.

In 2017, while working well over 1,000,000 man hours, Manson celebrated its safest year on record for Total Recordable and Lost Time Incident Rates.

According to WEDA, Manson’s exemplary safety commitment and dedication meet and exceed the Western Dredging Association’s stated desire to raise safety awareness throughout the dredging and marine construction industry and are greatly appreciated.
