For many years now, SafetyNet has been an important component to our safety culture at Turner.

Predictive Solutions, formerly DBO2, announced today that the Associated General Contractors of America recently recognized its customer, Turner Construction Company, as one of the safest construction companies in the United States with a 2011 Construction Safety and Excellence Award (CSEA).

Turner Construction Company is the leading general builder in the U.S. Its strong safety culture, reinforced through several safety initiatives, is one that promotes an injury-free environment, with a goal to send every worker home safe from each job, every day.

One specific and innovative safety program implemented by Turner is Predictive Solutions’ SafetyNet, which was rolled out to all safety and field personnel in 2004. SafetyNet is the leading technology for saving lives by predicting workplace injuries. It helps customers collect and analyze safety data to predict and prevent injuries.

Using SafetyNet, Turner collects safety observations across the entire company. Since implementing the Software as a Service (SaaS) solution in 2004, SafetyNet has been used on more than 3,000 projects at Turner. In 2011 alone, almost 1 million observations have been conducted. With such widespread use and an abundance of conducted observations, Turner continues to see a steady decrease in safety incidents since the program’s implementation.

“For many years now, SafetyNet has been an important component to our safety culture at Turner,” said Cindy DePrater, vice president, director of employee health & safety. “It provides us visibility into each of our sites to know where at-risk behaviors and unsafe conditions exist so that we can eliminate the risk and keep workers safe.”
