Safety is not just a matter of luck, but a matter of education, planning and discipline. Heavy construction is frequently dangerous work for the unplanned, untrained and undisciplined workforce. The risk can be mitigated by the commitment of the whole organization. George J. Igel & Co., Inc. is committed to being a stable employer and providing reliable services to our customers. Safety is part of that commitment.
The State of Ohio mandates Workers' Compensation programs which are administered and audited in accordance with strict regulations. Igel has demonstrated the fiscal stability and commitment to be approved for self insurance by the State of Ohio.
