The construction of TrustPoint Hospital in Murfreesboro, TN has reached a major milestone – 100,000 working hours with no recordable incidents. In celebration of this achievement, construction management firm, DeAngelis Diamond, held a luncheon for its subcontractors working on the jobsite. Lunch was provided by the 7th Annual BBQ Fundraiser, an event DeAngelis Diamond and ABEC Electric partnered on. The construction management firm ordered 250 lunches for their crew in support of the fundraiser, which benefits the March of Dimes, Nashville Rescue Mission, and St. Jude Children’s Hospital. This celebration comes at just the right time, as it is National Safety Week.
Safety is DeAngelis Diamond’s top priority and its safety officers work diligently to ensure every team member and subcontractor leaves the jobsite safely each day. DeAngelis Diamond requires all site workers to attend a site-specific safety orientation prior to working on the project. Their team members perform weekly site-safety inspections and weekly safety meetings with the entire crew. Safety officers perform monthly site-safety inspections that include a formal report. In addition, the safety department performs regular safety training for team members. All of this could not be accomplished without the participation of DeAngelis Diamond’s subcontractors.
DeAngelis Diamond’s Franklin office is building this project. “This huge achievement is a testament to everyone making the right decisions every day,” Project Manager, Kris Duran said. “There are a lot of risks involved in building this project – exterior skin on a two-story building, trenching for underground utilities, steel erection and working during winter months on scaffolding and uneven platforms – but our team is trained and more than capable.”
One of the ways the team assured success is each subcontractor had their own safety manager perform Fall Protection Training, site inspections, weekly tailgate meetings with their workers and submit a daily job hazard analysis in addition to the required DeAngelis Diamond safety training.
DeAngelis Diamond recently held a Topping Out ceremony for TrustPoint, a ceremony that erects the last steel beam on a project’s top floor. The hospital is slated to finish Fall 2018.
