Safety culture is important in construction no matter the size of the company. Suffolk Construction provides a great example of the power of a strong safety culture and how a well designed program can further strengthen it. Within just 12 months, the construction giant not only reduced recordable incidents by 28%, but it also cut lost time by 35%.
They didn’t accomplish these reductions through their safety culture alone, though. Suffolk built on that culture with a bold national safety program of their design, which they called RiskX.
How bold? When any of its more than 2,400 employees entered a job site, they were required to submit safety observations, either positive or negative, via a tablet or smartphone. From there, Newmetrix’s AI platform, Vinnie, along with its Safety Observations module provided Suffolk with technology for both reporting and analysis within RiskX.
