Safety, Service, Stewardship since 1968

Our work priorities change as needed to meet customer and market demands, but our Core Values don't ever change. We are committed to Safety, Service, and Stewardship. These values permeate everything we do. We believe that you will notice the difference.

Our commitment to Safety reflects the great value we place on people and life. There is nothing we do that is worth an injury. We will never ask one of our West Coast team members to risk his or her life or limb, and we will never put a customer, supplier, or member of the community at risk.

West Coast is committed to an injury-free and accident-free workFORCE. Achieving such a goal is hard work and it does not happen overnight. But the commitment and quality of the folks at West Coast has resulted in the best safety performance our company has ever experienced.

Our combined Company 2014 OSHA Recordable Frequency was 2.04, right at our target goal of 2.00 or less. While our goal is zero, we are much better than the industry average of 5.0. The severity of our losses were minor. This was evidenced by our best-ever average cost per man hour on fully developed claims at $0.27 and our lowest ever LWDII frequency factor of 0.31. Our LWDII was better than our previous year’s record setting of 0.34. Also, our X-Mod has been steadily decreasing and currently stands at 0.86. Finally, of our 20 locations, 60% have been injury free more than 1 year, while 20% have been injury free for 8 consecutive years.

We believe that every injury and accident is avoidable. We believe that life is a precious gift. We believe that safety is good business. We believe that the small things really do matter, and that it doesn't always happen to someone else.

We also believe that you will notice that West Coast Sand & Gravel is not just any ordinary company. Call us today, and let us make a difference on your project.
