Predictive Solutions, Pittsburgh, Pa., announced that its customer, Turner Construction Co., was recognized by the Associated General Contractors of America as one of the safest construction companies in the United States with a 2011 Construction Safety and Excellence Award (CSEA).
One specific and innovative safety program implemented by Turner, New York, N.Y., is Predictive Solutions’ SafetyNet, which was rolled out to all safety and field personnel in 2004. SafetyNet is the leading technology for saving lives by predicting workplace injuries. It helps customers collect and analyze safety data to predict and prevent injuries.
Using SafetyNet, Turner collects safety observations across the entire company. Since implementing the Software as a Service (SaaS) solution in 2004, SafetyNet has been used on more than 3,000 projects at Turner.
In 2011 alone, almost one million observations have been conducted. With such widespread use and an abundance of conducted observations, Turner continues to see a steady decrease in safety incidents since the program’s implementation.
“For many years now, SafetyNet has been an important component to our safety culture at Turner,” said Cindy DePrater, vice president, director of employee health & safety. “It provides us visibility into each of our sites to know where at-risk behaviors and unsafe conditions exist so that we can eliminate the risk and keep workers safe.”
