CORE Construction has a culture of safety that revolves around the belief that job site accidents and incidents are preventable. CORE empowers every member of the field operations staff to think of themselves as the company’s safety team. They also hold every member accountable.
All superintendents, project managers and laborers are required to use Predictive Solutions, a mobile safety-inspection application. The application is installed on every field personnel’s smart device, and the data collected is consolidated into a comprehensive real-time project safety report that is reviewed by CORE’s Continual Improvement Committee.
CORE’s dedication to safety starts with its Operational Excellence program, which includes six priorities — safety, quality, schedule, cost, subcontractors and client. Safety is first and foremost, with protocols dispersed throughout the company in training, collaboration and innovation.
On the training side, all project site supervisors are OSHA 30 trained, and site-specific safety orientation is required for all trade members, with regular interactive safety workshops for employees and building partners.
In terms of collaboration, every trade is required to provide a plan that breaks down each task, considers potential hazards and develops a strategy to mitigate any hazards. Innovation includes the use of the Predictive Solutions application.
CORE recently completed the East Las Vegas Library project, which involved the new construction of a 44,370-square-foot facility in an underserved part of the valley. Due to the size of the project, the safe coordination of all trades was paramount, and the project was completed in April with zero incidents and zero accidents.
