KWA Construction, LP was awarded the NAHB Multifamily Safe Program of the Year Award during the fifth annual NAHB/Builders Mutual Safety Award For Excellence (SAFE) at the 2011 NAHB International Builders’ Show.
The SAFE awards recognize the achievements of builders and trade contractors who have developed and implemented high-quality work-site safety programs, as well as government officials who have made successful efforts to advance safety in the home building industry.
KWA Construction, founded in 2004, specializes in providing general construction services for multifamily developments in the Texas market. KWA’s construction projects range in size from $3 million to $30 million.
Keller Webster, President of KWA Construction, LP, a member of NAHB’s Multifamily Council, was proud to have his organization recognized for the quality of its safety program and overall commitment to safety.
Providing a safe work environment to all persons on a KWA Construction project is an objective that KWA Construction takes personally, and remains a constant focus for all of its employees.
KWA’s safety program is managed through a variety of tools including a written safety manual, pre-construction planning meetings, weekly construction meetings, and a combination of routine and surprise inspections. Participation in ensuring a safe work site is encouraged from KWA employees, subcontractors, and visitors of KWA projects. Third-party experts who specialize in specific safety topics are included in the process for quality assurance.
All staff associated with project construction are required to maintain up-to-date training or certification for hazards, emergency procedures, personal protective equipments, hazard communication, construction equipment, and accident investigation and reporting. An OSHA 10-hour course, as well as training in first aid and CPR, and other applicable federally required training are also part of the program.
When additional assistance is needed, KWA scheduled safety procedure and training reviews with subcontractors, compliance inspections, and consulting during construction activities. Their continued honest assessments of both KWA Construction and subcontractors have helped to develop a notable reputation of excellence in safety procedures and on-site protection.
