A Commitment to Safety
The work we do at Gagnon is only possible because of the experience, training, and resources that most of our competitors lack. Gagnon’s Safety Director ensures all our employees attend the mandatory OSHA and MSHA training annually. Our scaffold builders meet or exceed the required 40 hours of specialized scaffolding certification in addition to the mandatory OSHA training.

We encourage our employees to take advantage of specialized industry training, such as API 936 and NIA insulation energy appraiser certifications.
