PCL’s safety efforts are customized for each project.

PCL recently completed a safety leadership workshop that involved company managers and field supervisors.

The workshop was an opportunity to revisit each person’s commitment to safety, identify any barriers for achieving zero incidents, evaluate internal organizational qualities and safety performance, and discuss everyone’s personal safety action plan.

The program also examines supervisor-to-worker relationships to promote mutual trust, and evaluates the consistency and effectiveness of management’s communication. Because of the diverse type of work PCL obtains, the company’s safety efforts are customized for each project.

This AGC Safety Team member firm implemented a craft-safety workshop for both PCL’s and subcontractors’ craft workers on each project. The purpose of this workshop is to get participants to think about and discuss the traits associated with safe workers, the reasons behind poor safety choices, and communication barriers between craft and management personnel.
