Intelligent Solutions for Your Construction Project
There are many concerns when embarking on a construction project—none more important than safety. Beyond the physical risk to personnel and the general community, injuries on the job site can be costly in terms of liability, your company’s good name, the project’s budget and its completion date.
Drawing on our company-wide commitment, skilled professionals, and award-winning safety innovations, The Lindy Group delivers intelligent safety solutions that have a positive impact on your construction project.
PROJECT SUCCESS DEPENDS ON SAFETY
The Lindy Group believes a project is not completed successfully unless it is completed safely.
Our MY SAFETY program means you can trust The Lindy Group to protect the well-being of your people, protect your good name, and complete your project cost effectively.
MY SAFETY LEADERSHIP
Our leaders integrate our safety values into everything they do, making our projects safer by always doing what is right. Our clients expect a safe, high-quality project, and we must deliver every time.
Our MY SAFETY program is structured around six key values that are critical to safety success.
Always to safety excellence
Employees so they make the right risk decisions
For evolving safety efforts
Employees’ safe behavior so they stop at-risk behavior
By learning from mistakes
MY SAFETY COMMITMENT
We believe in always doing the right thing first. That’s why the most important aspect of any effective safety program is a sincere commitment by top management. All The Lindy Group safety professionals hold a B.S. or M.S. in safety.
Our proactive approach to safety is continually recognized by industry organizations such as the Associated General Contractors of America, the National Safety Council, and the Master Builders’ Association of Western Pennsylvania.
The Lindy Group is actively involved in federal and state voluntary compliance programs on select projects. The goal of such partnerships is to encourage joint cooperation between OSHA, MOSH, The Lindy Group, and trade contractors to foster a safe work environment for all project employees.
MY SAFETY EDUCATION
A trained workforce is vital to minimizing accidents. The Lindy Group provides all our employees with the training needed to properly and safely perform their jobs. Employees participate in the My Safety Leadership workshop, behavioral-based safety training that encourages discussion and resolution of real-life job scenarios.
Field operations leaders receive between 40 and 100 hours of safety training. Our superintendents and foremen complete the company Safety Leadership Course, OSHA Construction Safety Course, as well as training programs on topics such as fall protection, excavation safety, scaffolding, defensive driving, First Aid and CPR. Selected project engineers also receive specialized training. This training is designed to create safety advocates who are empowered to act safely and encourage the same behavior in their staff. The result is a team of employees that is knowledgeable, confident, and capable of managing safety at the project location.
MY SAFETY STARTS WITH A PLAN
COMPREHENSIVE ACTIVITY HAZARD ANALYSIS
Weekly Safety Snapshots and Site Safety Checklists assist supervisors in recognizing, managing, and trending safe and unsafe behaviors on the work site.
MY SAFETY EMPOWERS EMPLOYEES
Leaders encourage Stop Work Authority by:
Actively listening and ensuring our employees that their input is critical to a safe workplace.
Stopping work whenever needed to keep the team safe.
Communicating Stop Work actions.
Discussing corrective measures with all involved workers.
MY SAFETY ALWAYS IMPROVES
While we strive to meet Goal Zero accidents by having the most comprehensive safety education, resources and support available, accidents may occur.
Project supervisors are trained to swiftly and smartly handle every accident event. They are trained to provide CPR and emergency First Aid. A Nurse Triage Help Line is at the ready to assess and determine the best course of action.
All accident data is gathered in a comprehensive record of injury and illness form that includes vital information on the root cause of the accident and potential corrective actions. The comprehensive incident report is shared and discussed with employees. These lessons learned help minimize similar events in the future.
MY SAFETY CELEBRATES SUCCESS
It’s important that companies acknowledge and motivate a job well done. To encourage and recognize safety, The Lindy Group has implemented several award and recognition programs for employees throughout our organization.
