Striving for Zero – Injuries – Shortcuts – Distractions

Lawrence University employees can follow the Boldt Construction example in striving for “0 zero today – injuries – shortcuts – distractions.”

Boldt Construction has been a Lawrence University construction partner for many years. Boldt states on their Website that Safe construction requires a holistic approach. “We don’t buy the idea that incidents are part of the job.” To build safely, we must focus on eliminating:   

  • Shortcuts – avoiding unintended consequences
  • Distractions – keeping focused on safe practices
  • Rework – ensuring adequate timelines
  • Near Misses – anticipating potential dangers
  • Injuries – equipping everyone to build their best life

(APPLETON, WI) On March 18, 2021- The Boldt Company has received a Platinum Safety Award from ConstructSecure, Inc. This award is presented to companies that register a safety score 95% or greater in the Safety Assessment Program administered by ConstructSecure.

To achieve zero injuries, we must learn to recognize hazards and control the risk of working in hazardous areas. Working around a construction site requires us to be alert to our surroundings, paying attention to safety signs posted to keep us safe.
