Sundt has an excellent safety record, winning the AGC Grand Award twice. Our commitment to the cause was further proven this week when company leaders visited job sites as we celebrated National Safety Week.
Chief Operating Officer Tom Case and Corporate Director of Health, Safety & Environment Paul Levin stopped by four of our Phoenix-area projects to talk with the crews. While their focus was on the importance of task hazard analyses and open communication among craft and admin employee-owners, Tom and Paul also made the trip to show our company’s dedication to National Safety Week. This is the fourth consecutive year we have been a sponsor for the event, which lasts through Friday.
“We wanted to kick off the week with good conversation,” Tom said. “We wanted to be visible and spend time listening to our employees and sharing our goals for the week.”
Tom and Paul visited four sites: Gilbert Light Rail, Union Tempe, Ak-Chin Casino Expansion and a confidential client. They were joined along the way by Transportation Group Manager Jeff Williamson, Industrial Group Manager Rich Kiel and Industrial Sector Manager Greg Ayres. Their message was clear.
“Every day is a safety day and every week is a safety week,” he said. “People are working really hard under schedule pressure to finish jobs. We need to spend time making sure we get it right and we do it safely. Don’t be in a hurry. Don’t cut corners. Look out for each other.”
