Benner & White Construction, Inc recently celebrated 700 continuous days without a lost time accident or injury. If we stay on track, we will soon achieve 2 years without a lost time accident or injury. This is a huge accomplishment for us! Everyone in the Company has worked hard to not only improve with safety, but to work as a team safely, and continue to change the safety culture of our company. Benner & White has maintained an EMR well below the industry standard of 1.00 and is currently at 0.759.
In addition, Benner & White is entering their 5th year as partners with OSHA and has worked closely with OSHA representatives to strengthen their safety program. Some other strategies to improve safety at B&W include: ABC STEP (Safety Training & Evaluation Process) recipients for over 15 years, monthly attendance at ABC safety meeting, networking with other safety minded companies, target to have every B&W employee OSHA10 certified nearly complete, weekly Tool Box Talks, weekly jobsite inspections, and constantly seeking feedback to improve the safety program at B&W. Our Goal Is Every Employee Returns Home Safely and we will continue to work hard to make sure this goal is strategically achieved.
