Ethan Edwards, a long-term Triangle team member, was recently recognized by a Triangle client for utilizing Triangle’s “Stop Work” authority related to a safety issue at the client’s laboratory facility. Ethan was installing HVAC equipment when his gas detector alerted a high carbon monoxide (CO) level. Even though his work did not involve an activity that would have caused the alarm, Ethan immediately stopped work and informed site personnel. It was discovered a hydrogen generator regulator in the facility was malfunctioning causing his monitor to alarm. Mr. Edward’s action protected himself and those around him. In recognition and appreciation for both his personal safety commitment and for his role in advancing the safety culture at Triangle, Mr. Edwards received a gift card along with a Triangle “Safety Champion” certificate from Triangle President /CEO, J.P. Kelly, project manager Neal Canada and safety director Dale Heath. Way to go Ethan!
Creating a safe working environment on every job and instilling safe working habits in our people is a critical responsibility of every employee. Our award-winning record is a testament to our safety efforts on every project. Triangle subscribes to a policy of proactive risk prevention directed by our full-time safety director. Ongoing safety training, comprehensive substance abuse screening, daily safety meetings, job-site audits, weekly safety talks, incentive programs and mandatory OSHA-30 safety training for project managers are just a few examples of how safety is emphasized and practiced at Triangle.
At Triangle, we LIVE safety every day. We believe that having zero accidents is an obtainable goal.
For the seventh year in a row, Triangle Enterprises has been awarded the Thomas J. Reynolds Safety Award from The Association of Union Constructors. This award recognizes excellence in construction safety and health performance based on work hours completed by union construction contractors under collective bargaining agreements. Eligibility for this award required Triangle to achieve a Days Away, Restricted or Transferred (DART) Rate 25% below the Bureau of Labor Statistics national average for the previous year.
On March 07, 2018, Triangle and its employees reached a landmark safety accomplishment: 5,000,000 work hours with no lost time injuries.
An accomplishment of this magnitude does not happen without the hard work and dedication of all our employees. Triangle management has dedicated the time and resources necessary to ensure safety is a core value. Triangle continues striving to embrace safety, not as a priority, but as the way we simply do business. Our supervisory personnel have embraced their respective roles of safety performance leaders for their employees. Most importantly, our individual employees have recognized their personal responsibility for their own safety, including “STOP WORK” authority and Triangle’s recent launch of an employee safety intervention program.
Triangle also recognizes and appreciates the safety leadership of our clients when performing work on their respective job sites. Site safety orientations and a positive safety presence at our host work sites is a key element in Triangle’s safety achievement as these locations represent the lion’s share of the work-hours our employees perform.
In summary, we want each and every one of our employees to understand job site safety is not about awards or records, safety is about going home each day to your family. If we will all “Think Safety & Work Safely” every day for every job task, we can achieve our ultimate goal of ZERO workplace injuries.
For the sixth consecutive year, Triangle Enterprises has been awarded The Associated General Contractors of Western Kentucky Chapter Safety Award. This award was presented to Triangle and its employees for achieving over 250,000 workhours without a lost time injury. Other entities which have recognized Triangle for our safety efforts include: Southern Illinois Builders Association, The Association of Union Constructors, and The National Maintenance Agreement Policy Committee.
Triangle employees achieved the lowest OSHA TRIR (total recordable incident rate) in recent history for the 2017 calendar year with a 0.28 rating. That equates to only one OSHA-recordable incident in working over 700,000 work hours. Similarly, Triangle has enjoyed several years with our LWIR at zero (Lost Workday Incident Rate). Despite the low numbers on our most recent, as well as previous TRIRs, Triangle will continue to strive for our ultimate goal of ZERO INCIDENTS and diligently work towards its achievement.
Triangle Enterprises has recently successfully renewed our CCS Safety Qualification. CCS is an independent third-party safety certification program required and utilized by several of our industrial clients located in the State of Indiana. Triangle is also approved through a number of national contractor safety certification services as well. These include: ISNetworld, Construct Secure, Avetta, Veriforce and Browz. This fact is of extreme importance to prospective clients who require these certifications to perform work at their respective locations. To achieve certification from these entities, Triangle must successfully undergo an extensive review of our safety programs, training records and safety statistics.
Effective June 1, 2014, Triangle’s Experience Modification Rate (EMR) will be 0.75—a 22% drop from the previous rate. The EMR is calculated by the independent National Council on Compensation Insurance and is a direct reflection of a company’s work comp injury claim history. For perspective, an EMR of 1.00 signifies a work comp claim history that is “average” for companies doing the same type of work. An EMR of less than 1 signifies a work comp claim history with fewer claims than average, while an EMR of greater than 1 signifies a history of more claims than average.
Triangle takes great pride in this statistic as we feel it is a strong indicator of our employees’ safety performance success. We will continue to look for ways to further improve our employees’ safety successes, not so Triangle can tout our performance via safety metrics, but so our employees can go home to their families safe after each day’s work.
