“At Layton Construction, safety is job one. If it isn’t safe, we just won’t do it. We stop what we’re doing, and we figure out a way to do it safely and correctly. That’s the pledge we make to you – and we make to each other – to be safe on and off the job. We want our employees and the employees of our subcontractor partners to come home safe to their families every night.”
