Swinerton’s safety committee is made up of upper-level management, superintendents and project teams that include the safety team as well. Meetings are held every couple of months to bring attention to certain topics that arise and provide a good platform for everyone to discuss any concerns they have with upcoming projects. The company’s Safety Saves program rewards individuals for coming up with solutions to safety issues, using their stop-work authority to correct any unsafe work being performed, and reporting of near misses. These individuals receive a gift card to a local lunch spot, a certificate in the mail, and a feature in Swinerton’s quarterly division newsletter with details about the report and on the person as well. Swinerton’s goal is to have all craftworkers trained in the equipment needed to complete their job. The company holds a yearly craft-training day where it brings a rental company out to train on forklifts, scissor lifts and boom lifts. Swinerton also brings out on-site health and safety to give fit testing to individuals, while its safety team provides fall protection (user and competent person) and silica training.
