Turner Construction

The safety culture at Turner Construction is built on the guiding principle of LIFE: living injury free everyday.

Training in safety is mandatory at Turner, and it is dedicated to providing employees and subcontractors with the best and most current information to do their jobs effectively.

The company has been an AGC Safety Team member since 1996.

Turner’s list of best practices include:

• A “ladders last” policy — to allow ladder use as an absolute last option

• Building-information modeling — to anticipate safety hazards as the design of the building is studied

• Pull planning — to improve the construction schedule and work methods in the field

• “Nothing hits the ground on their sites” — to better control materials and safety hazards
