Construction Safety Coordinator Opening Offers Support and Freedom

Haskell's common-sense safety approach empowers team members to know the standards, understand their intent and act to achieve success.


The challenges of keeping an industrial construction job site safe include great heights, high-voltage electricity, massive equipment and building components weighing many tons. They can also be as simple as sawing a piece of plywood.

Identifying and anticipating hazards big and small on Haskell job sites is everyone’s responsibility. However, the Project Safety Coordinator plays a key role and functions as the subject matter expert (SME) in making “good catch” observations.

“It’s a fantastic job and career if you like interacting and communicating in fast-paced environments surrounded by a diverse workforce,” said Brian Roundtree, Haskell’s Director of Corporate Safety. “This position is designed for someone with an inquisitive nature. Someone who understands how to approach, coach and mentor diverse work forces. Essentially, someone who has the heart of a teacher.”

Haskell’s Construction Core team supports all Haskell delivery groups on projects across the United States. C-Core is responsible for providing the field management personnel and logistical support, as well as conducting continual training and supporting team members’ ability to work their way up the ranks.

In this role, the successful candidate will be responsible for managing project-specific safety and health issues to protect Haskell employees, contract-partner employees, client personnel and the public. You will also evaluate and coordinate project activities to comply with rules, regulations, and policies applicable to project safety.

Haskell received one of six National Safety Pinnacle Awards this year by the Association of Builders and Contractors. In 2021, when Haskell worked a record 3.57 million manhours, team members suffered just three recordable injuries – and only one was related to field execution. The company’s Recordable Incident Rate (RIR) of 0.17 stands in stark contrast to the industry average of 2.3. That is to say that across the construction industry, 2.3 people per hundred full-time workers suffered a recordable injury. Haskell’s performance was 13.5 times better.

Similarly, Haskell’s rate of Days Away, Restricted or Transferred (DART) was 0.11, a performance 12 times better than the industry average of 1.3.

The company’s pragmatic approach to safety empowers team members at all levels to find workable solutions to challenges. As an example of that straightforward style, Haskell has boiled its huge safety manual down to a 12-page Code of Safe Practices, written in straightforward language that spells out easily understandable practices.

“We work hard at maintaining a safety program that works,” Roundtree said. “We have a common-sense approach. We provide people who know the standards and understand the “intent” the opportunity to think outside the box, to make good judgement calls based on the task or observation.

“We have a vision at Haskell that truly extends to our safety program. That is ‘Build a culture where leadership, employees, clients and contract partners are engaged in continuous improvement. Together we act with integrity, operate with excellence and care for people.’ It’s the principal of REAL -- Respect, Equity, Acknowledgement and Leadership.

In addition to providing the highly collaborative and fast-paced environment, Haskell operates with the direction of six strategic pillars, the first of which is to “Provide Team Members the BEST Job of Their Lives.” It offers a robust benefits package that includes a 401k match and an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP), which creates stock ownership for everyone who is full-time.
