There are several key elements to PCL’s safety culture.

One is the monthly forecast meeting, where detailed safety reports are provided to not only identify opportunities for improved safety performance, but to also provide recognition for the previous month’s safety accomplishments.

One of the bread-and-butter reports that are reviewed during this meeting is the Monthly Safe Action Plan. These individual plans are drafted by each project-management group after reviewing the previous month’s safety trends.

Being a construction company that operates throughout Canada and the U.S., PCL developed the written Construction Health, Safety & Environmental program, which generally conforms to a level that exceeds international standards.

Lessons learned from previous events challenged PCL to produce a written Safe Operating Procedures document that address 33 of the most challenging construction activities.
