Priorities can change, but values never waver — that’s why safety is a core value at Culpeper Wood. For us, that means safety is a constant guide for how we make decisions. It means that no matter what we are doing — completing a daily task, launching a new project, or solving a challenging problem — before we begin, we always ask: How can we do this safely? It also means that no matter how pressing a production or financial goal might be, we never compromise safety to reach that target. Safety truly comes first in everything we do.
This value is rooted in the belief that all safety incidents are preventable, and that working injury-free is possible. Because the work we do carries risk, all our facilities and operations use proven tools and systems to identify hazards, mitigate risk, learn from incidents when they do occur and inspire our people to always make the safe choice — every task, every time.
