Worker Safety Training
Safety remains a constant focus of the Southwest Project Office and contractor staff. Both entities have dedicated safety personnel that monitor construction sites for safety compliance, investigate safety issues, verify safety training requirements of all staff on site, and actively continue education on safety topics. Toolbox talks, where field staff gather to discuss a weekly safety topic, are a regular occurrence along the alignment. For example, during the summer heat, safety staff will check-in with crews about methods to avoid and monitor for heat stress.
