Gilmer Achieves CHST

Thomas Gilmer, onsite safety manager for Robinson Construction, has completed all requirements for the Board of Certified Safety Professionals (BCSP) Construction Health and Safety Technician (CHST) certification. This highly respected certification is awarded by BCSP to individuals who meet eligibility and experience criteria in the safety, health, and environmental (SH&E) discipline and have passed a rigorous examination.

Safety issues have become more complex and today’s safety professional must continually be better qualified. “Safety, health, and environmental practice relies on the knowledge and skills of its practitioners,” explains BCSP’s CEO, Christy Uden, CAE, IOM. “We are proud of those who join us in advancing safety through quality certification.”

BCSP credential holders are among the most highly trained, educated, and experienced individuals in the safety field. Having achieved a BCSP certification shows that the individual has mastered the core competency required for professional safety practice. Certificants recertify every five years to maintain certification, ensuring they remain knowledgeable in their practice and continuously improve the profession.

Robinson Construction Company announced it has achieved Diamond Level in Associated Builders and Contractor’s STEP Safety Management System, meaning the company is 655% safer than the industry average. Founded more than three decades ago, STEP has evolved into a world-class safety program that dramatically improves safety performance among construction industry participants.

“We are proud to be recognized by ABC as a Diamond Level STEP Award recipient for 2021,” said Paul Findlay, president of Robinson Construction. “Our entire team is dedicated to a Zero Incidents culture, and this is reflected in our ABC National STEP Diamond Level status.”

Robinson Construction has participated in the STEP program for nearly 20 years, earning an award each year at the Gold Level and above. Diamond is the highest level achievable through the program.

STEP participants measure their safety processes and policies on key components through a detailed questionnaire with the goal of implementing or enhancing safety programs that reduce jobsite incidents.

“Safety is a journey, and that journey is possible because of systems like STEP, which enables ABC member contractors like Robinson Construction to have a safer and more productive jobsite,” said Greg Sizemore, ABC vice president of health, safety, environment and workforce development. “Committing to total human health is essential to ensure both the physical and mental health and safety of our workforce, and I commend Robinson Construction for consistently fulfilling those commitments to raising the bar of safety performance.”

According to ABC’s annual Safety Performance Report, STEP participants, regardless of company size or type of work, and can reduce recordable incidents up to 85%, making the best performing companies more than eight times safer than the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics industry average. Ratings range from Diamond, the highest, to Platinum, Gold, Silver, Bronze and Participant.

We would like to thank all of our dedicated employees for helping us reach this goal! At Robinson we not only strive to provide a safe, healthy, and incident-free work environment, we EXPECT it. #rccoawards #rccosafety #constructionsafety #safety #agcmo

Today’s #ConstructionSafetyWeek topic is Be Safe, Be Well Rested. The construction industry often comes with early hours, long commutes and nightshift work. This can interrupt your body’s natural sleep/wake cycle and can have major consequences on your physical and mental health. Some simple things you can do to improve your quality of sleep, overall well-being, and safety on the jobsite include:

🏋🏼 Exercise – the more energy you expel during the day, the easier it is for your body to enter a restful sleep

🍎 Food & Beverage – avoid heavy meals before bedtime and caffeinated drinks within 6 hours of bedtime

😴 Sleep Routine – stay consistent with your bedtime and waketime, even on the weekends

🥱 Sleep Quantity – aim for 7+ hours of sleep per night

🛏 Sleep Environment – your sleep area should be dark, free of distraction and noise, and keep it cool – around 68 degrees #rccosafety #constructionsafety #besafebewellrested

Today’s safety topic is Be Relentless. To prevent injuries we must be relentless in paying attention to risk and monitoring what is happening around us at all times. Our safety coin and the messages engraved on the coin are daily reminders to Be Relentless every day by choosing to work safe for yourself, your coworkers, and the people that love you. Injuries happen in a flash, so we can never take safety for granted. #rccosafety #constructionsafetyweek #constructionsafety #berelentless

Today’s #ConstructionSafetyWeek topic is Healthy Mind, Healthy Body. Being safe means paying attention to both mind and body. Our people are our most valuable asset and we must take an active role in our physical and mental health. Exercise/stretching, meditation, adequate sleep, and a healthy diet can have a tremendous impact over time on your well-being. If we all strive for a healthier mind and body, we can shape a healthier future for the construction industry. #rccosafety #healthymindhealthybody

Today kicks off #ConstructionSafetyWeek. At Robinson we are committed to safety and ZERO INCIDENTS on ALL jobsites. We are kicking off today with each team member signing a jobsite safety commitment pledge banner that will be displayed on the jobsite. The banner reads just as their safety coins that they carry in their pockets as a reminder to work safe:

-Stop Unsafe Acts
-Do The Right Thing Every Time
-Zero Is Possible
-Zero Is Not Our Goal, It’s Our Expectation

Today’s daily topic is Be Present, Be Focused. This is the exact thing our employees are pledging to do. #rccosafety #constructionsafety #bepresentbefocused
