BUILDING A CULTURE OF SAFETY
Our goal is zero incidents. And to reach our goal, we’ve built a culture of safety that extends beyond the bounds of our jobsites, into the local community, general public, and families of all those working on-site. Safety is engrained into Shawmut’s foundation, with a top-down, bottom-up approach to driving innovation and continuous improvement.
We are committed to creating a healthy, injury-free environment. Our corporate safety steering committee is shored up by our regional safety branches, providing boots on the ground to drive local initiatives and pilots. With the support of our entire workforce, our safety teams confidently vet and implement new technologies that push us closer to hazard prediction and allow us to react quickly and efficiently to extreme safety challenges such as Covid-19.
Coupling technology with our culture of safety, we saw a 22% increase in engagement in our safety program and a 53% reduction in OSHA recordable incidents from 2019 to 2020.
Key to our success includes:
Highwire, a safety monitoring app that allows teams to make informed decisions based on real-time data
Smartvid.io, which harnesses the power of AI to detect safety performance and drive desired on-site behavior
Shawmut Vitals, our custom health screening platform that checks for Covid-19 symptoms and manages contact tracing to mitigate infectious disease spread
