GE Johnson recently celebrated over 300 days of zero injuries on the St. Francis Medical Center expansion and renovation project site. GE Johnson is the general contractor for the project and credits this safety milestone to the commitment of everyone on site to the safety culture.
The project uses the Hazard Recognition (haz rec) program, a self-directed safety initiative that gives every person on the jobsite a voice to positively influence the safety culture. QR codes are placed throughout the jobsite and everyone on site is given a QR code sticker to place on their hardhat at the project safety orientation. Upon scanning the QR code, workers are directed to a digital haz rec platform where they can communicate a positive or negative safety observation onsite. All haz rec forms, positive and corrective, are reviewed at the daily morning stretch and flex. Since the start of the last construction phase on this project, the project team members have produced over 1,000 haz rec cards!
