Sam Hill and Sons, Inc. accepts that a risk-free environment does not exist, but understands that many accidents can be prevented through the joint efforts of all individuals involved in our company. Safety is the responsibility of every person, regardless of position, within the company. Everyone can make a difference and we are dedicated to this fundamental belief. We will maintain a safety and health program conforming to the best practices of

organizations of this type. To be successful, such a program must embody proper attitudes toward injury and illness prevention on the part of supervisors and employees. It also requires cooperation in all safety and health matters, not only between supervisor and employee, but also between each employee and his/her co-workers. Only through such a cooperative effort can a safety program in the best interest of all be established and preserved.

Right now, it looks like Jurassic Park outside my front door, but that’s EXACTLY why it is so impressive. The men work in concert with each other, they’re on cue, on time, and without accident. The men are also very considerate and move their vehicles when they see I have to take my little granddaughter out in my car. My granddaughter thinks it’s the greatest truck show she ever saw and so do I. It’s extremely hard work and I am sure they are unsung heroes. The neighborhood would be a lot worse if the mechanical systems under our street didn’t work for daily living. Please let somebody know they are deeply appreciated.

Sam Hill & Sons, Inc did an excellent job, which is always great. Additionally, the personnel were efficient, polite, helpful, personable, informative, and generally intent on creating the least possible amount of inconvenience to residents. Their preplanning was impressive, the cleanup each evening was very good, and when a couple of small things were pointed out, they immediately addressed them. The changeover went smoothly. What can I say? A job well done and a contractor well chosen.

Not only have they been exceedingly accommodating, polite, neat and clean, but go out of their way to be friendly to all concerned in the area. They went out of their way to ask if everything was alright and be sure I had access to my home. I can’t imagine anyone having a complaint about Sam Hill. I would highly recommend Sam Hill & Sons, Inc. for any other projects the City of Ventura has forthcoming as it was a pleasure having such a fine company doing this work. Sam Hill is to be commended on their hiring practices as well.
