Construction work is a high-risk activity with many potential hazards. It is our goal to control recognized hazards and reduce the level of risk. Safety, Production and Quality are constant driving factors in construction, but no work activity is so important that it be done without consideration for safety first. Safety is non-negotiable, and is the core of our company’s culture.
We take care of each other! Our employees are valuable team members who continue to lead Bayley toward a successful pathway. We believe that our employees are the company’s greatest asset and every worker on our jobsite deserves a safe and healthy workplace, so that they may go home to their families. Therefore, we empower our employees to never “Choose to Look the Other Way”. Every employee is responsible for protecting his or her teammates, the project, our company, and most importantly themselves!
Training and Accountability are the cornerstones of an effective safety program. Therefore, we invest significant resources and time in educating our managers, supervisors and field personnel to aid them as leaders on their jobsites, in their communities and in their personal lives as well. All employees are expected the work in accordance to regulatory compliance for the construction industry. There are no exceptions!
Achieving Safety Excellence requires careful planning, innovation, communication, problem solving, and partnership. None of us are as smart as all of us. Together, we can outline an Injury Free Work Environment. Look in a mirror and ask yourself, “Who is responsible for my safety”. The answer is staring back at you.
BAYLEY ACHIEVES L&I’S FIRST START DESIGNATION FOR CONSTRUCTION
We are proud to be Washington’s ﬁrst construction company to achieve the state’s START designation. Both our corporate oﬃce on Mercer Island and equipment yard in Bellevue received the designation. This process involved a year of eﬀort between our Corporate Safety Director Joe Chandler and L&I Consultation department.
To achieve START status, a company must:
- request a full-service safety and health consultation from its local L & I consultation oﬃce, involving a comprehensive review of the company’s safety and health program;
- involve employees in the consultation process;
- submit a commitment letter to adhere to the principles of the START program;
- correct all hazards identiﬁed by the consultant;
- maintain the company’s Days Away, Restricted, or Transferred (DART) rate and Total Recordable
- Case (TRC) rate below the national average for your industry;
- agree to notify the local consultation oﬃce prior to making any changes in working conditions or processes that may introduce new hazards into the workplace.
