In a deadline-driven contracting industry like ours—which by its very nature can be invasive to an occupied job-site—quality workmanship can progress at a productive rate only when safety on the job is held paramount. With unwavering attention to every aspect of our safety policy, Hascall & Hall has adhered to this principle for well over 60 years, and we have a safety reputation to match.
With a corps of managers, supervisors, and employees trained and certified in compliance with OSHA regulations, we stand prepared to respond immediately to any situation that may arise at a job-site. Our Experience Modification Factor—one yardstick by which the insurance industry measures comparative injury rates—is well below 1%, placing us among the lowest in the construction industry.
Any Hascall & Hall worker has the right—whether they’re the project executive or the clean-up crew—to shut down a job-site immediately, at any time, should they suspect that site conditions are unsafe.
We believe no one single person can be held responsible for protecting an entire job-site, but rather through making everyone accountable we can achieve that end. Our people are our first and foremost asset, and there is no stronger way to enforce safety than to empower our employees to challenge the very standards we demand.
What’s more, if a safer way is determined we stop what we are doing and implement it. Every individual commits to uphold these standards the day they sign on with us. Through entrusting every team member to monitor, enforce, and ultimately drive safety policy we consistently operate above minimum standards set by OSHA. And whether you’re the client, subcontractor, site visitor, or one of our own team, we place minute-to-minute awareness of your safety at the forefront of our minds.
At Hascall & Hall, a culture of safety
is what drives our superior productivity
We know that taking on a construction project is disruptive enough to your business—without having to concern yourself about jobsite safety as well. For peace of mind when you’re under construction, it’s what stands behind your contractor’s written safety policy that matters most.
Thank you for the outstanding job you did in masonry repair on the buildings of our condominium. The foreman demonstrated not only excellent workmanship but also a sense of artistry – for example he mixed subtly different color bricks on one chimney restoration to achieve a better color match with the surrounding bricks. In short, we thank Hascall & Hall for their excellent work.
The crew at Hascall & Hall did a terrific job restoring the two chimneys at White Columns at the Kennebunkport Historical Society in Maine. They were friendly, efficient and sensitive to our tourists. We were able to keep White Columns opened during this construction process. In a nutshell, the project was a complete success from start to finish!
It gives me great pleasure to look at the beautiful restoration work done by Hascall & Hall at the former Augusta City Hall, now the Inn at City Hall. You and your talented craftsmen have added new life to a building that had suffered from lack of maintenance funds for an extended period of time. Thank you for not only doing a wonderful craftsman-like job, but also for being on budget and on time.
Over the years, I have always received prompt and complete service. Rob has always taken the time to explain all the issues around the job to be done and the work has been completed within the estimated time and dollar amount. I will continue to use Hascall & Hall for all my waterproofing and masonry needs in all of my commercial buildings and I would highly recommend them to anyone.
Hascall & Hall recently renovated and refinished our service shop floor in the Nissan building in Auburn. They went out of their way to accommodate our unrealistic demands to get this floor done extremely quickly and at a very competitive price. The cooperation, communication, professionalism, and overall results exceeded our expectations. We would recommend them to any business.
