Safety

Taking Safety Seriously

When your construction project begins, your mind will likely be filled with many competing priorities. The safety of those in and around the jobsite shouldn’t be one of them. Not when you’re working with a commercial construction company who genuinely believes safety is the most important thing we do ─ every day. Far beyond just our construction team and crew, we embrace a collaborative culture of safety and are committed to making sure your staff, facility users and members of the public return home safely when each day is done.

The Only Acceptable Goal

Our quest for a zero injury work environment isn’t just a priority. It’s a key tenet of our company. We emphasize safety, because simply, it’s the right thing to do.

A Genuine Culture of Safety

An embedded culture of safety starts with ownership — leading by example. Starting with our CEO Mike Bolen, to each and every one of our employee owners, a never-ending focus on safety is at the heart of what we do. Working closely with your team, McCarthy’s full-time safety professionals will coordinate proactively with trade partners and industry experts to customize our approach to make sure we’re planning for safety on your commercial construction project each and every step along the way.

Safety is the highest priority for McCarthy.

Supporting Your Business

Working safely ensures your project stays on track and your business goals are achieved. McCarthy utilizes leading indicators and observation-based programs to support our vigilant commitment to creating a safe workplace, and in every significant lagging indicator measure, we’ve consistently outperformed the industry by a wide margin for more than a decade.

McCarthy’s quality standard also helps to account for our consistent safety record. With quality built in at every step, rework is reduced or eliminated, reducing the chance of accidents and injuries.

And we’re never satisfied. While we strive to not only be the safest commercial construction company in America, we’re constantly pushing to improve safety performance, directly supporting business results for our clients and raising the bar for trade partners and the industry. Our experience modifier (EMR) has produced a credit on our workers' compensation insurance premium for each year since 1993. 

 

The attention to detail and to safety by McCarthy is second to none.

It’s Never Too Early to Plan for Safety

Outstanding commercial construction safety performance isn’t a fluke. Our formal, proactive safety program is actively managed by a trained and dedicated staff of full-time safety professionals. We provide mentorship and guidance to effectively plan and perform work safely and then hold ourselves and our trade partners accountable for this safety performance. Key elements of our approach include:

  • Detailed McCarthy Safety Guidelines provide the highest level of loss control
  • Focus on preplanning identifies and minimize potential hazards before they become a safety issue
  • Award-winning approach to Training ensures all team members develop and maintain skills required to perform work safely

Partnering For Safety

Everyone needs to be on the same page for a commercial construction safety program to work. Over the past decade, we've taken this team approach to a new level by partnering with OSHA through their Strategic Partnership Program (OSPP). Together we’re working cooperatively to address critical safety and health issues. This very different approach is proving to be an effective tool for reducing injuries in the workplace.
