Safety Culture

Robertson & Olson Construction, Inc. takes pride in maintaining a safe work environment free of incident or injury for all employees, subcontractors, clients and job sites. An Injury-Free Environment (IFE) requires more than just reaching for a zero-injury goal—it involves creating and maintaining a safety culture that permeates everything we do and all that we are. And it’s not limited to active construction sites. Our office is safe, our people at all locations look out for each other and “keep a clean house.” Small items can make a big difference. Do other teams study cable management and trip hazards in the office? We do. We have peer review safety and the right to speak up at all levels. We have regular safety meetings on the jobsite, of course, and we discuss current opportunities and threats throughout the project lifecycle. But we also live safely in the trailers, at our headquarters and at home.

Please don’t hesitate to ask any single Robertson & Olson employee about his or her belief and understanding of living safe. It’s job #1, for every person.

Our EMR = 0.6000!

We believe in evolution of safety management programs in order to ensure our valuable people are improving their safe living for themselves and their families. At the construction site, this means craftsmen look out for craftsmen. It means vendors who spend only a fraction of time on construction sites are given extra support and attention. Site meetings with architects and clients MUST involve safety awareness and compliance.

We Study and Promote LEADING INDICATORS, not the Trailing Type.
