The ultimate bottom line.
Flintco 4 LIFE focuses on process, practice and individual behaviors to improve safety by Living Incident Free Everyday (LIFE). We explore how people think, feel and relate to safety, and look at the role of the organization in providing a safe work environment. The 4 R’s are prominent in our approach: Reach out, do it Right, Raise your voice and Recognize hazards.
The Shortcut – A Story of Survival
Flintco HSE Regional Director Shane Harris, CHST, PSC, was badly injured on April 4, 2001, while working as an electrician in Austin, Texas, prior to joining Flintco. Shane spent many weeks in a chemically induced coma in the burn unit at Brooks Army Medical Center in San Antonio because he took a shortcut. Flintco produced a short film about his experience called The Shortcut – A Story of Survival.
Every day we seek to open channels of communication, build relationships, expand risk awareness and increase the frequency of workers choosing to work safely – because it is the right thing to do. Flintco 4 LIFE is about creating a workplace committed to eliminating safety incidents and injuries. Flintco cares deeply about everyone on our jobs going home safely. We strive to provide a work environment where everyone is treated with dignity and respect.
The keys to our success are worker assurance, acknowledgement and contribution. Assurance that what is being done is being done correctly (the actions and the culture that drives those actions). Identifying and acknowledging the things that are being done well (good behaviors), which we want to encourage. And finally, by engaging all workers to contribute through conversation and listening.
To be recognized consistently over the years by our peers – especially for Safety – is particularly gratifying.
Flintco was named one of the nation’s safest builders by the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) on Wednesday, March 27, 2019, at the ABC National Safety Excellence Awards held in Long Beach, CA.
Companies are judged on self-evaluation scores, lost workday case rates, total recordable incident rates, leading indicator use, process and program innovations and video interviews conducted by members of ABC’s National Environment, Health and Safety Committee. This latest recognition means that Flintco’s Safety performance, the Flintco 4 LIFE program and our commitment to continuous improvement, especially when it comes to the well-being of everyone associated with our work, is resonating. Safety and Quality are paramount at Flintco.
