Kiewit joined more than 80 industry peers to celebrate Safety Week 2018 May 7-11. Across North America, project teams engaged in training, discussions and celebrations to reinforce their commitment to safety and reflect on this year’s Safety Week theme – The Power of Safe Choices.
In the Dallas Fort-Worth area, SouthGate Constructors, a joint venture of Kiewit Infrastructure South Co. and Austin Bridge & Road, are nearing completion of the Midtown Express project for the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT). The entire project, including the joint venture team, client and subcontractors, kicked off Safety Week together. Kiewit Safety Director Rand Magee and Kiewit Infrastructure South Co. Vice President Shane Petersen welcomed the group and discussed safe choices with the Midtown Express team.
After a project overview and message from leadership — including words from guests TxDOT Chief Engineer Bill Hale and Kiewit Infrastructure Group President Scott Cassels — project leadership went on a safety tour of various operations along State Highway 183. The tour ended with lunch with the Midtown Express Craft Voice in Safety (CVIS) team, where attendees had an open discussion about safe choices and challenges in the remaining months of construction.
