Throughout Hallen's 80 year history a safe and healthy workplace has been recognized as a key ingredient to our success and growth. Employees are continually trained to be mindful of the welfare of our customers, the public at large, fellow employees and, of course, themselves. This means strict adherence to the laws that govern us, the exercise of good judgment and common sense. Our workers are encouraged to ask questions when they encounter issues outside their sphere of knowledge. This insures that our workforce remains dynamic and helps Hallen reach its goal of a safe and productive working environment.
