Total Wrecking Summit


For the past 10 years, Total Wrecking & Environmental has worked tirelessly to uphold the highest safety standards in the industry, ensuring that every employee on our jobsites is safe, informed, and accountable.

And we took our commitment to safety to new heights this year with our Safety Summit in Stone Mountain, GA.

This was far from your average training seminar; it was a full-company, three-day retreat where every member of the Total Wrecking team from across the country was flown in to immerse themselves in best practices and better get to know the whole team.

Total Wrecking’s most ardent mission is to ensure all team members, as well as their families, are of strong mental health, financially stable, and comfortable within all of their work environments.

This comprehensive summit was a testament to that steadfast dedication to care for your colleagues like they’re family.


The summit was a multi-day, hands-on event that gave the whole Total Wrecking workforce the skills and tools needed to perform their work safely and efficiently.

The intent of the Safety Summit was, first and foremost, to provide necessary training directly related to the work that Total Wrecking performs, the hazards involved, and the steps and means to mitigate those hazards.

In other words, it’s about elevating awareness and empowering each person with a voice. Every member of Total Wrecking’s team needs to have the knowledge and skills they need to navigate the complexities of these inherently dangerous industrial demolition sites.

Total Wrecking firmly believes that everyone in the field should feel empowered to be a safety officer and to speak up or act when they see an opportunity.
