Training + Safety

At LaurelRock, we constantly strive to work to a high standard to ensure that every project is deployed within a safe work environment and with care and efficiency.

For more than a decade, the firm has been a member of the National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP) STARS Safe Company Program, the nation’s top safety program for the landscape industry. As a participating company, LaurelRock has made a pledge to excellence in safe work practices by taking an active role in promoting safety throughout the company and investigating and documenting every job-related injury, incident, or accident.

We also firmly believe that off-season training is especially important to ensure a safe spring. This, along with our weekly safety tailgate talks, is a large part of our safety success story at LaurelRock.

The LaurelRock Company is proud to be recognized by the NALP for their commitment to safety, receiving multiple awards in the categories of NALP Overall Safety Achievement and No Vehicle Accidents over the years.
