PCL Construction Services

PCL Construction Services employs several methods to measure the effectiveness of its safety program. The company’s total recordable incident rate measures not only traditional OSHA recordable injuries but also near misses. Reports provide data on its record over the prior month and the year to date, as well as the results of jobsite inspections.

PCL also conducts an extensive annual review of health and safety program documentation, interviews workers and completes thorough jobsite inspections. Auditors are senior-level HSE personnel from elsewhere in the company and safety professionals from PCL’s insurance company. Their report is shared with management who then prepare an action plan to correct any deficiencies.

PCL also invites DOSH/OSHA consultants onto its projects several times each year, providing comprehensive and objective reviews.

PCL’s annual safety perception questionnaire is administered on each project for craft workers from both PCL and subcontractors. Responses are anonymous, with some of the best feedback coming from “additional comments” sections. Results are tabulated for each project and for the district as a whole. Action plans are then developed to address any identified deficiencies.
