Fairfield, CT – Sunrise of Fairfield was recently recognized as one of ENR New England’s 2020 Excellence in Safety Award Winners.
From start to finish, the team at Sunrise of Fairfield held safety as the number one priority and, through hard work and commitment, implemented a safe and secure construction site that earned the project team recognition.
Wohlsen Construction Company had a very detailed and comprehensive safety plan that was site-specific and enforced throughout the duration of the project. The site-specific safety ensured that all on-site parties were aware of the safety measures and expectations specific to the project.
Wohlsen’s project manager, Mike Courtney; project engineers, Davidson Abiali, Alexandra Pisano, and Gerardo Reyes; and site superintendent, Darrin Reed, monitored safety at all times, as well as regular safety inspections by Wohlsen’s safety manager, Jeff Bruso.
The level of importance the team placed on safety was communicated to the team immediately, setting the tone for the rest of the project. On-site safety measures included safety training for all subcontractors as they arrived on-site, with badging as validation of the training received, to make sure everyone on site was trained properly.
The most beneficial aspect of keeping the job site safe was the power Wohlsen gives all its teammates to recognize and stop unsafe or potentially unsafe practices. This led to a safe and secure construction site through the project’s entirety.
