Safety Along This Prominent Highway Interchange Was a Priority

This project was constructed on a Greenfield site directly adjacent to the busy interchange of Interstate 294 and Willow Road. Our comprehensive site-specific safety program included policies and procedures, responsibilities for each individual on the project, and expectations for subcontractors and their employees. In addition, we managed:

  • Visual, site-specific orientation facilitated daily by on-site safety personnel.
  • A daily huddle for all trades to review the day’s activities, hazards and control measures necessary to eliminate incidents.
  • Safe worker recognition for those going above and beyond to identify and address safety and health concerns, including potential pedestrian issues.
