SAFETY

TL Wallace considers safety a core value we continually support with actions, not just words. It’s our goal to minimize the human and financial costs associated with construction site accidents.

To that end, we have a proactive safety program with features that require participation from both management and labor. Currently, many of our personnel (including over 30 managers) hold advanced certifications, including:

  • OSHA 30.

  • NCCCO Crane Operations.

  • First Aid/CPR Training.

  • Fall Protection Competent Person Training.

  • ATSSA Traffic Control Supervisor.

  • HAZWOPER 40 hour.

  • Stormwater Management Training.

We also offer operators and entry level personnel basic safety training certifications, including:

  • Flagging.

  • Crane Signaler.

  • Forklift Operation.

  • OSHA 10.

A number of these certifications, including NCCCO Crane Operations, First Aid/CPR, Fall Protection Competent Person Training and Flagging, are offered to our employees in-house, and we hope to offer OSHA 10 and OSHA 30 in the near future.

We also promote continuous safety training and monitoring as a part of our ongoing operations:

We also offer operators and entry level personnel basic safety training certifications, including:

  • Weekly safety meetings for all TL Wallace crews, along with safety audits performed at each project site at least once a quarter.

  • Our own safety incentive program known as Safety Bucks that rewards crews with financial bonuses based on their collective driving or work safety.

  • A strong, zero tolerance drug and alcohol policy.

As a result we’re currently maintaining a 0.64 Experience Modification Rating (EMR), well under the threshold requirements for the oil and gas industry. We also have a Total Recordable Incident Rate (TRIR) of 3.02, better than the heavy civil industry average. And we’re not satisfied: we continue to work toward even better performance ratings.

We understand the critical importance of worksite safety, not only for our workers but also for our customers and sub-contractors. Safety and accident prevention will continue to be a top priority for every single member of TL Wallace.
