SAFETY IS A CORE VALUE AT PAINTERS USA
The safety culture ingrained in the Painters USA family of companies is definitely no accident. It is ingrained in every employee with consistent & ongoing training. We ask all our employees at every level for a 100% buy-in when it comes to the safety culture we have carefully cultivated in our 40+ years in business.
Painters USA employs a full-time Safety Director who is instrumental in instilling and maintaining the safety culture our employees share, in the field and in the office. From newly-hired employees to the most seasoned veterans in all divisions of Painters USA, he works tirelessly for our employees to make it home to our families unscathed and unharmed every single day.
Our Safety Director, Kyle Armstrong, has a strong philosophy: All injuries and incidents are preventable and safety is an integral part of everyone’s job. He believes working safely is a condition of employment and that injury prevention has a direct impact on morale, productivity, company earnings, & customer satisfaction.

What Does Our Focus On Jobsite Safety Mean for YOU?
Painters USA’s commitment to safety will give you peace of mind when the time comes for contracting your own maintenance projects. Besides our own safety program, we frequently attend site and company-specific safety training prior to starting a project. We welcome these opportunities to further our knowledge and ensure the wellbeing of everyone on a jobsite.
None of our achievements would be possible without Kyle’s leadership and the full support and compliance of our employees companywide.
