Washington Patriot Construction’s management team prioritizes safety throughout the company.
Quarterly “all hands on deck” safety meetings help to keep staff current on safety issues and recent AGC alerts. All new-hire workers undergo a review of the company’s safety plan and policies before reporting to the field, where they receive another safety orientation.
Understanding that different eyes see different things, the company also assigns a craft person to perform the weekly site-safety audit. Other recently implemented safety steps include color-coded hard hats and vests for visitors, a daily stretch-and-flex program for on-site workers, emergency-information stickers inside hard hats and suggestion boxes at all jobsites.
Washington Patriot provides to staff in-house third-party safety training and access to online OSHA classes. The firm is also a member of Occupational Safety Councils of America (OSCA), providing online access to the OSCA database. All employees also receive monthly safety bulletins that cover relevant news, alerts and issues of importance.
