SAFETY & LOGISTICS
Winter Construction takes safety seriously. Our business is all about people and building safe, functional, and high-quality spaces for them. So, we take precautions to protect the safety of every person on our job sites. It’s our number one priority.
Winter puts people first. At every stage of preconstruction and construction through completion and warranty, we work collaboratively to focus on protecting and safeguarding each person. Determining site logistics early on and leveraging aspects of Lean Construction, like on-demand deliveries, helps us make our projects efficient, safe, and secure.
Winter knows the importance of having a safe, healthy, and clean jobsite. Our precautions begin at the very top. Starting with our CEO and VP of Risk Management all the way to our Project Engineers and Field Representatives, making every project as safe as possible is everyone’s responsibility.
Winter’s excellent safety record has been recognized by Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC), who awarded Winter the Platinum STEP Award in 2015, 2016, and 2017. ABC’s Safety Training and Evaluation Process (STEP) recognizes member companies that employ effective safety practices on their jobsites, based on 20 key elements of contractor safety programs such as management commitment, pre-planning for safety on jobsites, safety training, and resources committed to safety.
Winter has many protocols and protections in place on our job sites to keep everyone safe.
Our Superintendents alongside our Project Management staff monitor the project location, traffic patterns and peak times, pedestrian traffic flow, and other considerations, well before we begin construction. We have proven capability to plan every logistical aspect – from job site perimeter, fencing, safety attire and gear, trailer location, deliveries, parking, to crane placement and swing radius, flagmen positions, and more.
This careful and precise planning coincides with frequent collaboration and communication with the client and project facilities team members so everyone’s expectations are clear, and to account for important activities and events so we can minimize the impact of construction.
