Safety and Training
Stuart Dean is the national leader in the restoration and maintenance of metal, stone, wood, glass, and facades but we’re most proud of our ability to create and maintain a safe work environment for our technicians, our clients and building occupants. We continually develop and implement state-of-the-art methods to achieve safety and service excellence in each and every project.
That’s why Stuart Dean established a National Training Center to teach employees vital safety and hazmat regulations. We are dedicated to not only meeting, but exceeding, the safety and environmental standards outlined by the United States Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the metal, stone, wood and glass industries.
Stuart Dean University teaches team members the proper use of equipment, policies and procedures through hands-on demonstrations and vendor/partner engagements, to successfully meet our clients’ expectations.
All of Stuart Dean works hard to maintain a measurably superior safety record.
