Contractor Byrne Construction Services required that all employees, staff and visitors attend a safety orientation before entering the jobsite. A site-specific emergency action plan was enacted, and Byrne also had a full-time safety manager on site every day.
Also included in the project’s safety program were daily inspections of the jobsite and monthly project-wide safety meetings. Other safety measures included daily jobsite inspections, monthly project-wide safety meetings and weekly toolbox safety talks for all subcontractors. The project team recorded 252,598 man-hours with no lost-time accidents.
