On Monday, May 3rd Amazon kicked off their First Annual Construction Safety Summit and we were honored to be the first of four Construction Partners to present. Our team, led by our EHS Manager, Nathan Heppler, delivered a presentation on “General Safety & PPE” to Amazon’s Global Engineering Services team, which included hundreds of Amazon’s Construction Managers, leaders and safety teams throughout North America and Europe.
When we received the request to participate as a presenter, we emphatically said “YES!” and jumped at the opportunity. The topic of General Safety & PPE is incredibly broad – but to summarize, safety is about making sure everyone goes home to their family in the same way they came to work.
Our team provided insight on several items of note including:
- Having a safety mindset
- Open lines of communication
- Best practices at TWF
- Having intentional strategy sessions/utilizing technology
- PPE – The last line of defense
- Safety items specific to the DNA2 project
At TWF, safety isn’t just a priority; it’s engrained in our culture. We work tirelessly to protect our people and projects by striving for zero employee injuries while operating and delivering our work sustainably and responsibly.
