MY SAFETY: INTELLIGENT SOLUTIONS
FOR YOUR CONSTRUCTION PROJECT
There are many concerns when embarking on a construction project—none more important than safety. Beyond the physical risk to personnel and the general community, injuries on the job site can be costly in terms of liability, your company’s good name, the project’s budget and its completion date.
That’s why at PJ Dick, Trumbull and Lindy Paving, we believe a project is not completed successfully unless it is completed safely.
MY SAFETY means you can trust PJ Dick, Trumbull and Lindy Paving to ensure the well-being of your people, protect your good name, and complete your project cost-effectively.

- Plan for evolving safety efforts.
- Empower employees’ safe behavior so they stop at-risk behavior.

MY SAFETY: STARTS WITH COMMITMENT
We believe in always doing the right thing first. That’s why the most important aspect of any effective safety program is a sincere commitment by top management. All safety professionals hold a BS or MS in Safety. Our efforts are continually recognized by industry organizations such as the Associated General Contractors of America, the National Safety Council and the Master Builders’ Association of Western PA.

MY SAFETY MEANS EDUCATED EMPLOYEES
Recognizing that a trained workforce is vital to minimizing accidents, we provide all our employees with the training needed to properly and safely perform their jobs. Employees participate in the My Safety Leadership workshop, behavioral-based safety training that encourages discussion and resolution of real-life job scenarios.
Field operations leaders receive between 40 and 100 hours of safety training. This training is designed to create safety advocates who are empowered to act responsibly and encourage the same behavior in their staff. The result is a team of employees that is knowledgeable, confident and capable of managing safety at the project location.
COMMUNICATION IS KEY
Our leaders know that good communication is one of the best ways to prevent incidents. They conduct daily safety sessions and hold comprehensive safety talks and meetings.
Additionally, to prepare for real-world experience, highly participatory workshops engage employees in a variety of safety-related scenarios.

Safety is a principal corporate value at PJ Dick, Trumbull, and Lindy Paving at all organizational levels.
MY SAFETY STARTS WITH A PLAN
Before each project begins, supervisors follow a comprehensive Activity Hazard Analysis (AHA) to identify all potential and existing hazards and eliminate them before the job commences. From that assessment they develop and communicate a site-specific Safety Plan and share all pertinent safety information with each site employee.

Safety resources are readily available on the companies’ intranet and provide our field workforce with immediate access to the information they need to make good risk decisions on the project in real time.
LEADERS ENCOURAGE STOP WORK AUTHORITY BY:
- Actively listening and ensuring our employees that their input is critical to a safe workplace.
- Stopping work whenever needed to keep the team safe.
- Communicating Stop Work actions.
- Discussing corrective measures with all involved workers.
Importantly, each and every team member has the ability and responsibility to Stop Work whenever it appears safety is compromised.
