Brian Salsgiver Safety Professional of the Year Award

Justin Molocznik

JTM Construction


Since joining JTM, Justin Molocznik has energized a safety program that was in peril. While the attitude and desire for a strong safety culture was built into the organization at its core, the safety effort lacked the organization and leadership to capture its energy.

It was evidenced that change was imminent from the beginning of Molocznik’s tenure, as he strategically changed the language around safety within the organization, starting with leadership’s understanding of the impacts of a safety culture. It was from here where Molocznik and his team started to build accountability for safety, and refine the mentality of a compliance-based culture. Two strategic projects helped emphasize this effort, one being the evaluation and overhaul of JTM’s accident prevention plan (which has been adopted into the JTM employee health and safety manual), and the second being the reorganization of the safety team to capitalize on team member strengths and better define responsibilities.

By focusing in these areas early-on, and completing these projects with input from the entire organization, Molocznik was able to gain buy-in throughout the organization, and the belief that safety was highly achievable and priority one for JTM was embraced.
