Zero Incidents Culture


Safety at Shaw-lundquist

Project safety is essential on every job site. Whether a new build or the renovation of an occupied structure, Shaw-Lundquist’s goal is ZERO Incidents. A “zero incidents” safety culture is more ambitious than the traditional “zero accidents” approach. We strive to proactive assess safety risks well in advance of construction, choosing the best possible means and methods of construction from the perspective of safety. Our experienced field teams are encouraged to “use their imaginations” to consider all possible scenarios that could suggest unsafe methods or behaviors before they occur.


  • Pre-project safety planning
  • Site-specific safety plan
  • Continuous safety training
  • Consistent safety audits and reporting
  • OSHA partnership and consultation
  • Environmental management

Our safety program is led by our full-time Safety Director, Ben Galen. In addition to his Board of Certified Safety Professionals credentials, Ben also has many prior years of experience as a project superintendent. He is the single point of responsibility and accountability for all safety procedures, education, and project specific safety plans.
