In June, the Bowers Residences team invited Utah Occupational Safety and Health (UOSH) to provide a consultation at their site. Due to the team’s constant vigilance and dedication to safety, UOSH did not leave any recommendations on how to make the site safer– congratulations to the team!
In addition to Bowers Residences, Camber and Slate Apartments also participated in consultations. Both projects performed similarly.
The purpose of the visit was two-fold: First, UOSH makes recommendations on how to improve the overall safety and health of the site. Second, the team has an opportunity to build a relationship with UOSH in order to show the state of Utah– and our subcontractors– that Zwick uses safe building practices.
During the consultation, UOSH looked for correct signage, fire extinguishers, wash stations, fall protection, appropriate housekeeping, access and egress points, and other items of interest. Additionally, UOSH looked through our Heat Illness Prevention Program (HIPP), especially with such high temperatures this time of year.
"We are actively getting involved with UOSH in making our jobsites safer places to work, and we are looking forward to continuing our relationship with them."
Our Director of HSE, said, “At Zwick, we want to improve the safety culture and raise awareness of potential jobsite hazards. This visit showed UOSH that Zwick and our trade partners want to get involved and have safe sites.”
Moving ahead, other projects in Utah will be participating in UOSH consultations.
Thanks to each project team for their hard work in preparing for these consultations.
