Turner Construction Co.

Safety training is mandatory at Turner, and the company is dedicated to providing its employees and subcontractors with the best and most current information to effectively do their jobs.

Turner requires all workers at a foreman level or higher, as well as Turner staff, to complete the OSHA 30-hour safety training course as well as an OSHA 30 refresher course every three years. Staying current on safety means and methods allows everyone to work safely on their projects.

Additional safety training on varying topics is done in full-day seminars, site safety meetings, weekly meetings, toolbox talks, daily huddles, one-on-one instruction sessions, written manuals, demonstrative videos, on-the-job educational inspection reviews and Turner’s online university.

The company’s online university provides a variety of web-based training topics, including moisture control, mold awareness, stormwater, industrial hygiene and fall protection, to name a few.

A large part of the company’s job site workforce are subcontractors, so Turner wants to make sure they also have the proper resources for safety training. Training for subcontractors begins with pre-job orientation, which thoroughly covers Turner’s Building L.I.F.E. safety program.

Turner’s team approach and open communication culture promote cultivating each team member’s skill levels, helping them grow and work better as a team.
