RENEDAGE SERIES, Edition 1: Dave Cortez on Safety and Synergy on the jobsite

“Safety is all about awareness. My biggest focus is to coach and create a team that puts safety as a priority. Having a functioning team implementing safety and creating awareness for your workers, that’s key. Every new worker on this job and all of our jobs goes through a site-specific orientation to go over rules and set clear safety expectations for the project so that everyone is on the same page and is striving for the same thing. There are enough challenges in construction as it is, so we aim to foster a culture where people are intuitively trying to make each other’s jobs easier and are looking out for each other. Whenever you have that, it’s just awesome. I call that creating synergy. I monitor each project and make sure that’s happening.” – Dave Cortez, Safety Manager
