CURT Award FB 20161107 203158

HazTek is honored to announce that the Construction Users Roundtable (CURT) has selected Merck & Co.’s “NEUS Office Portfolio of Projects” as winner of a 2016 Owner Safety Award at the 2016 Construction Industry Safety Excellence (CISE) Constructor Awards! Pictured here with the prestigious award is Bruce Henderson, Managing Partner of HazTek Safety Management (at left) and Claudio Campanella, Associate Director for Merck & Co. 

Many congratulations go out to the Merck Corporate Headquarters in Kenilworth, New Jersey where they performed such extensive building and grounds improvements as cafeteria renovation, shell space demolition, Health Services renovations, lower level demolition, and a garage project that, all totaled, required over 12 months to complete.

HazTek is proud to have aligned with Merck to assist in their safety efforts and pleased that all of the work was completed without any OSHA Recordable incidents over the 114,260 hours worked. Some of the innovative safety practices included: 

  • Personal Commitments to Safety, written and posted by each member of the project team.
  • Hearts and Minds Behavioral Training modules, used in meetings held with the CM and Contractor Representatives.
  • Site Program Management, utilized and included a wellness program, weekly logistics meetings to detail updates, and safety topic discussions in tier meetings to review ongoing safety issues.
  • 5S program of Clean Build used from the start of each project and maintained a dedicated staff working on the organization of laydown spaces and housekeeping.
  • Mentoring Program – All Supervisors and some Journeymen were given mentorship training and were designated as mentors to new employees on site.
  • A commitment to report all safety incidents and to tap in when someone saw an unsafe act or unsafe condition was encouraged and rewarded.
  • Weekly Safety Tours, organized with persons from outside the project to give a fresh set of eyes looking at the project’s safety.

CURT’s Construction Industry Safety Excellence (CISE) Constructor Awards were developed to recognize commendable safety management by owner member companies of CURT that have most effectively implemented the recommendations of the Construction Users Roundtable R-807, CURT Construction Owners’ Safety Blueprint, and other CURT user practices. The awards are conferred upon the companies who can demonstrate exemplary programs of safety management that go beyond merely adopting a safety program. The programs must demonstrate a serious owner’s management commitment and collaborative involvement to make the program work.

The objectives of the awards are to focus attention on improving construction safety; recognize stellar performers; increase understanding and implementation of CURT publications; publicize model owner safety programs; and convey to the construction industry CURT's full support of owner involvement in safety management.

Herb Strong HazTek Inc.2016’s Zero Fatality and Incident Campaign Continues with the Ironworker Safety Director Training Course

Ypsilanti, Michigan will be the destination for over 3,000 International Ironworker member contractors in North America traveling from all over the United States and Canada during July’s Ironworker Safety Director Training Course, a two-day program created to “assist members with new skill sets to manage a comprehensive company safety program for a signatory contractor, project owner, or general contractor.” This course is one of many initiatives  developed in alignment with 2016’s Zero Fatality and Incident Campaign, designed specifically to raise the standard of safety performance among Ironworkers across North America. The sold-out event runs from July 14 through July 15 and was commissioned by Iron Workers General President and IMPACT Labor Co-Chair Eric Dean, who represents more than 130,000 ironworkers in the United States and Canada.
 
IMPACT (Ironworker Management Progressive Action Cooperative Trust) maintains an ongoing role and partnership with The International Ironworker Board to fund training that strives to achieve zero fatalities and serious injuries to the Ironworker. “When you focus on safety, the results come. We have no higher commitment than our commitment to safety, and we make it a point of focus every step of the way,” said General President Eric Dean. “Our next highest commitment is to quality, productive work, which is required to drive the results we consistently deliver.”
 
HazTek Inc.’s Herb Strong will be one of the esteemed lecturers, providing insight and inspiration regarding the importance of job hazard analyses and site safety plans. Since 2012, Strong has been working for HazTek Inc., one of North America’s largest and most experienced occupational health and safety management firms, providing consultation, training, and field services, with headquarters in New Jersey.
 
Strong first attended the Ironworker Training Week in July 2015 as an invited guest and a member of the Ironworkers/IMPACT International Safety Roundtable, after having spent over 15 years working in safety within the commercial and industrial structural steel industry.
 
"General President Eric Dean and Executive Director of Safety and Health Steve Rank have spearheaded the development of the first-ever Ironworker Safety Director Training Course, which will go a long way in enhancing the continual efforts of achieving zero fatalities on the projects being built by the North American Ironworker,” says Strong. “I am proud to be one of the eight instructors who have developed the material and will be presenting this course."
 
Strong, who is based out of HazTek’s Tampa, Florida office, will be delivering his two-hour training module to 125 participants. During his course, entitled, “Developing and Utilizing a JHA” he will guide the audience through the creation of a JHA (Job Hazard Assessment), implementation of site safety plans, and documentation of workplace inspections – to identify unsafe acts and conditions in the workplace.
 
The Ironworker Safety Director Training Course will also be available later in the year in two other major cities. Possible hosts for this compelling safety event appear to be Philadelphia and San Diego, though the selected destinations have yet to be confirmed.
