Safety isn’t just something we do. It’s who we are.

It’s our mission to protect everyone related to a project from injury — employees, subcontractors and any site visitors. That requires more than compliance with safety regulations. It means creating an atmosphere where safety is at the forefront of all that we do. Where everyone’s got each other’s back and a culture of caring is established. Where planning, training and teamwork make safety a state of mind.

That’s why we’ve developed SafeThinking — a comprehensive program designed to help us achieve zero injuries or incidents on the job. SafeThinking includes:

  • Leadership commitment to eliminating incidents
  • A dedicated team of safety experts
  • Management engagement and conversations with the workforce
  • Continuous positive reinforcement for safe behaviors and hazard recognition
  • Planning efforts, processes and checklists that minimize on-the-job risks
  • Ongoing hazard assessments to ensure safe practices
  • Communication and training activities that educate the workforce on hazards at work and at home
  • Utilization of predictive technology and analytics to prevent incidents before they happen

SafeThinking is a way of life. It’s an attitude we bring to everything we do, no matter the task. And it’s a commitment that’s earned us continuous recognition from construction safety leaders across the country.

Our safety goal: Zero Today

Eliminating Injuries One Day at a Time

Achieving an injury-free workplace starts today. We do this by approaching safety from a new perspective. It goes beyond focusing on the dangers associated with the tools and equipment we use. It’s about a commitment to eliminating the dangers we don’t see.

Our goal each day is to have ZERO:

  • Shortcuts
  • Distractions
  • Re-work
  • Near misses
  • Injuries

We believe in focusing on the task at hand, planning and re-planning if conditions change, acknowledging the dangers that exist and addressing them together. Today.
