At LF Driscoll, safety is not simply a priority because priorities change. Instead, safety is a core value, a moral obligation and an essential element of who we are. It is part of our DNA. We are committed to the promise that every worker on every jobsite goes home safely, every single day.
We have the largest construction safety staff in our region, and their only job is safety management. Our staff is not only OSHA trained, but also trained through our own “Safety 360” program, which focuses on behavior-based safety. We’re also participants in the OSHA Voluntary Protection Program (VPP) and have multiple VPP Star Construction sites.
We partner with the Mid-Atlantic Construction Safety Council to provide 10 and 30-hour and OSHA training for all of our staff. We also require subcontractor foremen to complete the 30-hour OSHA training. As a result, our 2017 EMR is 0.78 – well below the national average.
Our firm established the LF Driscoll Healthcare Center of Excellence: a 30-hour training program in healthcare construction protocols that prepares our builders for the Certified Healthcare Constructor (CHC) program offered by the American Hospital Association.
