Safety has an impact on everyone and every part of our lives from when we get up in the morning to when we arrive home safely. At Q&D our safety programs are all-encompassing, driven by the desire to protect not just our own but everyone within the sphere of your construction project.
That’s why we believe safety is a lifestyle, not an event.
There is no more valuable part of our organization than the lives of the people that bring the skill, integrity and quality to our jobsites every day.
To make certain every employee goes home safely to his or her family every night, Q&D has started the Leading an Incident Free Environment, or L.I.F.E. program at Q&D.
THE PRINCIPLES BEHIND THE LIFE PROGRAM INCLUDE
For your project, Q&D will facilitate initial and regular safety meetings throughout preconstruction and construction. During preconstruction, the project team will create an overall site-specific safety and logistics plan that encompasses the site and the impacts of construction on the surrounding areas including:
The site-specific safety plan informs and references Q&D’s corporate safety policies and will integrate client priorities and programs. Everyone on the team will have a clear, concise understanding of how Q&D’s culture of safety is implemented on your project.
There are multiple ways to incorporate safety into the project while keeping each individual’s safety our primary concern. Together we will evaluate cost, schedule, aesthetic and travel impacts of each scenario to find the best possible safety solution for your project. A third dimension adds depth and accuracy to planning for pedestrian safety, tower crane, site access, alternate bus routes, trailer and restroom locations at a project site.
To continually work to improve safety, Q&D formed the Safety Committee, which has been working to support our corporate safety leaders and management for over 20 years. They provide input and support on safety initiatives, incident investigations and the integration of new laws and policies into our Health & Safety Program. The committee’s members are a cross-section of the company, including managers, field supervisors and Q&D executives.
