Deep South Communications is the first and only company that has replaced the industry standard “cat head” or capstan winch with a much safer alternative. The capstan winch has been a source of untold injuries in this industry. We welcome the opportunity to share our approach with you and show you the added safety benefits.
What this safety commitment means to our customer is a significantly reduced risk of exposure. Our technicians are also trained in first aid and CPR. We have one of the most stringent drug testing programs in existence. We use hair follicle testing that looks at the last 90 days on average and cannot be beat by the employee. Our drug testing program is administered by a third party and tests 100% of our employees yearly, twice that of the industry standard. Sixty percent of the applicants that apply to work at Deep South Communications from our competitors cannot pass our drug tests. Most of those are still employed in this industry.
