WHAT SAFETY MEANS TO US
WA Patriot’s focus on safety is based on our desire that everyone returns home to their families each night without injury or illness. Safety matters to us because we have families and friends with whom we want to be able to enjoy the fruits of our hard work. Family vacations, ski trips with friends, celebrating the birth of a child, or simply being able to take your dog for a walk are just some of the reasons we all strive to maintain safe and healthy lifestyles—at work and at home.
WA Patriot places the safety of every employee, customer, visitor, subcontractor, supplier, and consultant as our highest priority on every jobsite. Our safety culture encourages and empowers everyone on the jobsite to speak out and report any unsafe work practice or condition. We hold all employees accountable for maintaining a safe work environment and for making sure unsafe conditions are not ignored. Education is provided to ensure all employees’ training and certifications are up to date.
CELEBRATING SAFETY SUCCESS
WA Patriot takes our safety practices very seriously, and we believe that personal accountability contributes to the success of our team. Our team knows that safety is everybody’s responsibility, everyday. Examples of how we celebrate our safety success include:
- Catered safety lunches for the entire project crew
- Annual Safety Awards for all team members who worked all year without an accident or injury
- Safety Bucks Program – employees earn “safety bucks” for every hour they work without an accident or injury
Our teams commitment to safety excellence is reflected in the awards that we have received from the AGC in recognition of our safety successes.
WA Patriot management staff and project teams work with industry partners to keep up on the latest safety news and to develop the safest work practices. We welcome third party consultants such as Integrity Safety Services, Safety Matters, and Lawson & Associates to work with us to make sure we are implementing our safety policy as effectively as possible. We are also proud to partner with the Associated General Contractors of WA (AGC) as a valued Safety Team Member. To learn more about our industry partners, please visit their websites:
