AWCI’s Excellence in Construction safety Award

The 2013 winner of AWCI’s Excellence in Construction Safety Award for Companies with fewer than 300,000 annual man-hours is Raymond San Diego (California).

In a continued effort to achieve safety excellence, Raymond’s safety department proactively develops programs to prevent incidents and address jobsite hazards.

Through personal involvement and commitment, the company’s senior managers personally demonstrate that safety has a high value to the organization.

Raymond’s line management is given ownership for safety, as well. Because managers and supervisors control the workplace environment, they have the greatest influence in modeling safe behavior with their employees.

The company has established high standards for safety performance for all employees, including management. Safety training is ongoing. Safety rules, safe operating procedures, departmental procedures and governmental regulations are written and communicated regularly and enforced consistently, and there are consequences for non-compliance.

Raymond’s safety program has saved the company millions of dollars over the years by reducing the number of unsafe acts and unsafe conditions that result in both direct and indirect loss. Through education and assigned accountability, Raymond continuously creates a safety culture where every injury is considered preventable.

This is a company that keeps safety a priority. Even the voicemail message of Raymond Group Safety Director Kirk Williamson ends with a friendly reminder to “have a safe day!”
