Each year, Safety Week a is time when Haskell reinforces and celebrates the essential role that safety serves in its culture and success. This year, it has much to celebrate.
Not only did the company receive the Associated Builders and Contractors National Safety Pinnacle Award, but it did so with glistening statistical results. In 2021, when its team members worked a record 3.57 million manhours, they suffered just three recordable injuries – and only one of those was related to field execution.
As a result, Haskell’s Recordable Incident Rate (RIR) of 0.17 stood in stark contrast to the industry average of 2.3. That meant that across the construction industry, 2.3 people per 100 full-time workers suffered a recordable injury. Haskell’s performance was 13.5 times better.
“Our Haskell team members and contract partners continue to demonstrate every day that safety is an operational priority,” John-Paul Saenz, Haskell Executive Vice President and COO, said in kicking off Safety Week. “Throughout Safety Week, we invite you to participate in some unique programming while celebrating our culture of excellence.”
While safety is foremost among Haskell’s core principles every day, this week it will showcase innovation, share candid insights into support in the workplace, recognize Haskell’s safety success, and hear from Safety Advocates Russ and Laurel Youngstrom as they deliver a message that saves lives.
