AISC Advanced Certified Steel Erector is a badge JPW Erectors wears proudly. It testifies to the fact that our quality and safety practices are unsurpassed in the steel industry. AISC certified companies are subjected to intense third party audits by people experienced in steel erection to evaluate their quality management system.

To obtain this certification, a company has to meet stringent quality and safety requirements and demonstrate that all policies and procedures are implemented and effective in the field.

JPW’s quality/safety management begins before an employee or piece of equipment leaves the shop. Project Specific Erection Plans (PSEP’s) and Project Specific Safety Plans (PSSP’s) are written and communicated throughout the company for each project. Erection and crane lift plan software is used to generate an effective and safe project erection sequence and erection drawing.

Other aspects of JPW’s quality management system include:

  • New employees go through an initial orientation familiarizing them with JPW policies and procedures.
  • All employees are thoroughly trained in every aspect of safety, including fall protection, equipment operation, first aid and CPR, as well as our own policies and procedures.
  • Job site superintendents conduct daily safety briefings that focus on potential problems unique to each job site and ways to avoid them.
  • Our weldors are AWS and DOT certified, and our crane operators are state licensed.
