ExxonMobil recently announced its Houston campus project has achieved more than seven million work hours without any injuries requiring employees or contractors to miss work.
“This milestone is the result of work by a team that is highly focused and pays attention to personal and team safety,” said Mark Tressler, execution manager for the ExxonMobil campus project team. “We want everyone on the site to work safe, so that they can go home safe.”
Nearly 20 buildings are now in various phases of construction at the site. Gilbane Building Co. and Harvey Builders have formed a joint venture, Gilbane-Harvey, to act as the general contractor for the project. The companies were reportedly selected, in part, based on their previous safety records and experience.
The Houston campus project is one of the largest commercial construction projects in the nation. Approximately 3,000 workers are onsite every day. The injury incidence rate is one-sixth of the industry average for commercial construction projects.
