Safety is a core value at Charter, and an obligation to our employees, partners and clients. Our safety plan is incorporated at every phase of each project, and it’s success is dependent on the effort made by every Charter team member and subcontractor who works on one of our projects. Led by Ed Price, our Safety Director, Charter ensures that everyone on the team has the information and tools they need to do their job safely. This includes constant and thorough training that covers all aspects of the work we do on site, frequent toolbox talks and communication to all team members, and utilization of the most up-to-date and innovative technology to track and capture our safety metrics. Safety and quality go hand-in-hand, and it’s thanks to our collaborative focus on creating safe work environments that we produce high-quality projects that exceed our clients expectations.
Charter’s commitment to health & safety is a year-round effort, but to close out this year’s Construction Safety Week, we want to recognize some of the recent trainings our team has completed in accordance with this year’s theme: Connected. Supported. Safe.
Last week, we held Heavy Equipment Training at our Lynn Landfill project site. The training included a discussion covering working near utilities and operator licensing requirements, as well as hands-on equipment inspections and skilled exercises with excavators, loaders, and an articulated dump truck. Our operators were monitored and evaluated, and real-time coaching was given by the various experts on site.
This week, we joined OSHA’s National Safety Stand-Down to Prevent Falls in Construction. Charter’s safety team held stand-downs at multiple project sites, and used the opportunity to bring awareness to fall hazards in our industry, and reinforce the importance of fall prevention.
Charter is proud to join our peers in recognizing the importance of safety in our industry, this week, and throughout the year.Back to all
