Washington Patriot continues to grow in the industry with diverse and challenging projects. Washington Patriot’s senior managers and general superintendent have set out and implemented a culture of safety where employees talk daily, share safety memos, safety reports, safety talks and safety lessons learned.

The company’s safety culture now includes daily safety pre-task planning. No work takes place until safety plans are approved and unless hazard assessments are posted and received for each project.

The team discusses what technology they have researched and what training that has been recently given to personnel. Washington Patriot promotes the use of safety experts and asks them to all its project sites.

Employees train on any hazard they have not been previously been trained on that applies to company job sites (such as recent ammonia-hazard and lead-awareness training). Employees attend safety meetings held by the company’s clients to learn and share best practices.
