Boston  – Shawmut Design and Construction, a national construction management firm, announced a new leadership role and unveiled state-of-the art safety innovations in a strategic move to enhance its world-class safety program.

The company has promoted Shaun Carvalho to vice president of safety, adding safety representation at the executive leadership level. Carvalho, previously the firm’s safety director, will lead Shawmut in piloting and implementing programs and technologies, ultimately advancing the firm’s commitment to creating a safer industry for all. This announcement comes as Shawmut prepares for the upcoming Safety Week, the annual industry event where the company educates staff to train and manage safety techniques and protocols.

This year, Carvalho launched new task forces and pioneered innovative software platforms that identify and document hazards in real time, allowing teams to immediately address issues and prevent incidents.

To proactively respond to the opioid crisis, Carvalho has mobilized the cross-functional Opioid Task Force which provides resources for the construction industry to combat the epidemic.

Shawmut has also rolled out new technologies, including SmartVid.io, which reduces risk by harnessing the power of Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology that automatically detects safety performance in jobsite photos, measures trends, provides workflow analysis, and allows the teams to drive desired on-site behaviors.

Additional Shawmut safety initiatives include the mobilization of the Fire Safety Task Force to help teams identify exposure areas and solutions to prevent fires on job sites.

From May 6 – 10, Shawmut will celebrate its tenth annual Safety Week by offering a series of interactive demonstrations designed to train employees on the latest safety procedures, protocols, and technologies. Shawmut anticipates this year’s events will include well over 800 trainings and 15,000 attendees.
