Employee Safety

Employee Safety has been a leading point of emphasis for KAS Investment Co since opening its doors 30 years ago. It is the policy of KAS to strive for the highest safety standards on our projects and in our shop facilities. Management acknowledges that safety does not occur by chance. Rather, it is the result of careful attention to all company operations by those who are directly and indirectly involved.
