Boston- – Callahan Construction Managers (Callahan), a Bridgewater-based full-service construction management firm, commemorated OSHA’s National Safety Stand-Down Week through a series of specialized on-site trainings focused on fall protection. Callahan hosted the presentations and demonstrations at a number of project sites in the Greater Boston region in partnership with Atlantic Equipment and FallTech, who are leading national providers of construction safety products and resources.
“Work site safety is a leading priority at Callahan and a continuous focus area for our trainings and exercises,” said Tim LeBlanc, Safety Director at Callahan. “These on-site demonstrations, as part of our ongoing safety programs, provide our teams with vital updates on best practices and procedures to ensure our uncompromising commitment to safety is maintained at all levels.”
OSHA’s Fourth Annual National Fall Prevention Stand-Down takes place May 8th to 12th with a focus on raising awareness to encourage improved practices and fewer incidents. Callahan hosted fall protection trainings across several of their project sites including Post @ 200 Smith in Waltham, Hampton Inn in Waltham and Northpoint II in Cambridge.
Through ongoing safety training programs and strict internal standards, Callahan continually aims to stand as a leader in workplace safety. Team members at all levels are regularly updated on job site best practices and are held to stringent safety procedures on every site. A testament to Callahan’s commitment to safety, the firm has received several awards including a National Safety Excellence Merit Award from Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC), as well as Gold Level Safety Training Evaluation Process honors from ABC MA over the past nine consecutive years.
