There is no such thing as “too much safety,” especially at one of the region’s most important transportation infrastructure projects.
So while 3TC remains focused on enhanced health and safety protocols throughout the LIRR Expansion Project, this week our team members took it to the next level by participating in Safety Week 2021.
Members of the 3TC team and additional subcontractors participated in various safety demonstrations, including a Rigging Safety seminar that focused on advanced material lifting along with effective rigging techniques that protect everyone. Team members also took a Fall Protection class, which stressed the importance of implementing crucial protections wherever needed. No detail was spared as instructors discussed the proper techniques in constructing guardrails and toe boards along the LIRR’s work sites.
Other safety highlights included an advanced electrical training course for all project superintendents, and a visit by representatives from Milwaukee Tools to discuss using new ergonomic tools that add an additional factor to workplace safety.
Safety is embedded into every aspect of the LIRR Expansion project where each operation is first reviewed to determine whether every precaution has been considered. Every day our crews take this obligation very seriously. The lessons they have learned during Safety Week 2021 will only strengthen their approach to effective safety methods, and allow them to incorporate these techniques into their work on this transformative project.
