Who We Are
The people behind the hard-hats are truly the ones you do business with. We strongly believe that good business starts with good relationships.
Who We Are
Personnel Ferrosafe currently maintains a full-time staff of over 30 employees. We also maintain a steady stream of qualified applicants thanks to our dedicated human resources manager, Marianna Boggs. Should the amount of work we are awarded require additional personnel, we plan to first re-assign current employees and supplement those efforts by training additional personnel according to the systemic processes outlined in documents we send to you during the beginning stages of a job.
Our field staff includes field managers and quality-check specialists who provide ground level day-today guidance and supervision in addition to their work duties.
On the mechanical side, when required by project-sensitive concerns, we utilize a deep bench of contractors with special areas of expertise. We also supplement our mechanical field staff by having interns from natural resources schools at nearby universities work under the direct guidance of our field managers. This practice has afforded us the opportunity to grow our team by placing well-rounded and knowledgeable people in permanent positions within our organization.
Each member of our field staff spends upwards of 100 hours working directly alongside a manager, and each Ferrosafe crew includes operators licensed in pesticide and herbicide application. All of our employees undergo background checks and safety training in compliance with Class I requirements such as eRailsafe, RWP safety training and railroad contractor orientation courses.
We believe that safety is the first and most important consideration in every project, and we operate accordingly.
The below listed personnel are directly involved in operations management with many years of experience in pesticide applications in environments such as that presented by your company. All of our applicators carry appropriate licenses .
We are members of the National Railroad Contractors Association, allowing our team of applicators to attend these meetings each year in Indianapolis, Indiana, where they receive continued education as required by the states that they are licensed in. Each of our applicators also attend internal training sessions by our company to provide other levels of education dealing with specific needs.
Several states also hold educational classes which our personnel attend when applicable. In addition, our company holds licenses in each state of operations as required by the state, along with all needed permits required to legally and safely perform services in all states of operations.
