Construction Safety Meeting Topics

The drive to improve construction site safety transcends everything else, even competition in the industry. To that end, McCownGordon Construction established daily work briefings for each team member involved in projects. These construction safety meeting topics include methods for approaching the day’s task in a way that maximizes safety across the board. 

Operational Risk Management daily work planning

Collaborative task planning via daily Operational Risk Management (ORM) meetings involving everyone working on the project allows team members to thoroughly assess the safety of their task. In these daily planning sessions, the team gathers around a dry erase board illustrating five core steps and walks through their task, step-by-step, identifying any potential hazards and their mitigation.

Through this process the team gains increased situational awareness of the tasks they’re facing, which is essential to reducing the potential for accidents. We believe in creating open dialogue and developing an environment that not only improves construction site safety, but is inclusive of all associates. 

McCownGordon is at the forefront of a transforming construction industry. We understand that even the newest associates need to have their voices heard. Our approach to collaborative task planning is perfectly in step with our commitment to DEI. The ORM process not only allows for, but requires collaboration—inclusion is baked in. Everyone gets an opportunity to voice their opinion and ask questions. 

Even in construction, there are often a multitude of approaches to any given task. Someone who is new to the industry could still have great, fresh ideas for how to implement safety processes effectively. Some company cultures don’t put emphasis on gathering input from their newest voices, but that’s simply not how we operate.
