Management Engagement & Commitment to Construction Safety
Preserving safety on the job to ensure that our employees go home safely is a top priority.
Lindblad Construction recognizes that while safety is everyone’s responsibility, it must begin with the highest level of management. It is the philosophy of Lindblad Construction that in order to create and maintain a strong culture of safety, every employee must be responsible for preserving a safe workplace on each jobsite.
Lindblad’s Ownership team takes a very proactive approach to preserving the safety of each employee. Ownership approves of and supports a variety of safety initiatives intended to improve the overall safety program. These initiatives have recently included extensive industrial hygiene sampling as well as involvement in annual company-wide training sessions, and unwavering support of COVID-19 mitigations.
Project Managers and superintendents work closely with Safety to develop jobsite safety plans, JSAs, determine training needed, and materials required to safely execute each project. In the event of an incident, Project Managers and Superintendents are involved in root-cause analysis and client notifications. Lindblad’s Project Managers accept responsibility for safety by selecting skilled, trained, and competent craftsmen for project assignments.
As a supplement to the above philosophy, Lindblad has enacted a ZERO TOLERANCE policy. The ZERO TOLERANCE policy is not intended to seek punishment but rather, provide clear expectation for the workforce. The ZERO TOLERANCE policy has been developed to hold accountable all employees of Lindblad by making clear the expectations as well as the ramifications should a rule or program be violated.

Lindblad has evolved and maneuvered through the years by embracing technological advancement within the industry. Lindblad Safety has implemented technological tools that have enhanced job-site hazard awareness & mitigation; open communication; and document control.
