Safety is our first priority.

It’s personal, it takes commitment, and it isn’t always convenient, but every person who works at Austin Powder knows that it is never optional.

At Austin Powder we recognize that every day is a new day, bringing a fresh set of circumstances and challenges.

In order to fulfill our mission statement, we give our employees state-of-the-art training that cultivates a sense of watchful responsibility for themselves and one another and empowers them with the authority to stop any activity they deem unsafe. And just as importantly, they are supported by our company culture to make the right safety decisions in every task they do… no matter what. There is nothing in our business that is worth an individual getting hurt.

We see every person in every aspect of our business as a valued member of our family where everyone looks out for their brothers and sisters.

Our commitment to safety has evolved since we began in 1833 to include our blasting services in the field, in addition to the requirements at our manufacturing and storage facilities. We bring the same level of safety care to the way we drive and maintain our fleet of vehicles and how we manage our equipment underground. Our corporate goal is to be recognized as the safest explosives manufacturer, supplier, and blasting company in the world.

Our Safety Mission is for each and every employee to leave work at the end of the day and enjoy their time with their family and friends at home… every day.

Safety Is Our 1st Priority
