At Sallenger Incorporated, safety is the utmost priority and it is at the core of everything we do. Maintaining a safe environment for our employees has contributed to our Zero Injury, Zero Incident status. Since going into business in 2002 our company has had Zero Lost Time Accidents. Our Workers Comp Experience Mod Rate of .83 is a testament to our commitment to Safety.
Our focus on Safety Training and Procedures for our employees, as well as utilizing safe equipment, encourages an efficient secure work environment. All project managers are OSHA 30 Hour trained, Superintendents are OSHA 10 Hour trained, and both complete annual MSHA 8 Hour training refresher. All equipment operators working on mine sites are also trained with the annual MSHA 8 Hour training refresher.
Equipment Operators are thoroughly task trained for each and every piece of equipment prior to being authorized to operate. All employees are subject to pre-employment drug testing as well as random and post accident drug testing. Keeping our jobsites 100% Accident Free is our highest priority.
Starting out with just 3 pieces of heavy equipment in 2002, we have been able to grow our fleet to over 40 pieces. Sallenger Inc. has one of the most current-model heavy equipment fleets in Central Illinois with Tier 3 and Tier 4 Final designations.
We utilize the most current Trimble Global Positioning System (GPS) with Earthworks Platform automatic hydraulics on our bulldozers and graders. This allows for high speed grading with an accuracy of ½ inch grading tolerance, and increased production rates, which in turn allows our customers the most competitive prices. Our scrapers & excavators are GPS equipped with manual hydraulics. By utilizing GPS on the excavators it allows us to clean out ponds, basins, & impoundments that have been lined with HDPE liners, and control our grade to prevent damage to the liner.
We have the ability to convert Auto Cad Drawings provided by the design engineer to 3D Digital Terrain Models (DTM) to ensure the project stays on schedule, even when there are design changes throughout the course of the project.
With our combined experience of over 90 years, we can meet with our clients and their engineering firms to work together on “value engineering” the project prior to the final design stage. This can save the client from having to import or export material, and end up with a balanced earthwork project for the final design. This in turn, saves the client time and money.
Sallenger Inc. has been able to create long term working relationships with our clients. A large percentage of our work load is repeat business. Our clients have come to expect the high standards we strive to maintain. We are known for providing safe job sites, working with extreme efficiency to provide timely completions, and unmatched quality of work at the most competitive prices.
