General Contractor Over 500,000 worker hours

Turner Construction

Turner recognized that it would be drastically increasing its amount of field labor in the third quarter of 2019. Ahead of that, the company restructured its self-perform organization to be ready for the increase. A field-labor manager position was created (this person is also a long-time safety professional). Three self-perform safety professionals were also brought in to support workforces on jobsites and at orientation. This allows the jobsite safety professional time to focus on the jobsite in its entirety. Turner also implemented a full-day orientation for all new hires in 2019. During the orientation, workers are trained in Turner’s Building LIFE program, Ladder Last Policy (ladder use), fall protection, confined space and tool awareness. This allows workers to be trained in the basics prior to stepping foot on site, and also allows the company to gauge workers’ buy-in on Turner’s safety culture.
