Safety is our #1 Priority:
- Tindall is an active member of the Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute (PCI) in order to ensure best practices in our design, manufacturing, and field service operations. Tindall continues to improve our safety and quality and has a team of dedicated professionals who work to make projects more safe and efficient.
- Because of its reliance on in-plant manufacturing over on-site construction, a precast project logs significantly fewer on-site man-hours and personnel. This alone reduces site safety risks and potential construction delays caused by injury, post-event regulatory action, and litigation.
Additionally, we follow set standards and policies to ensure safety for everyone involved in a project.
- We require that all erection subcontractors be PCI certified erectors so that we can maintain industry specific tolerances on erection. Our SC Division has certified erector capability.
- We require that they establish and maintain a site specific safety plan for each project regardless of project scope and durations.
- We incorporate the owners' and/or general contractors' site specific safety guidelines into our operations—even those more stringent than ours. For example, if a contractor requires long-sleeved shirts for all operations, we add this requirement to our program for that specific project.
- We evaluate all subcontractors for safety prior to the project and audit them through the project to ensure compliance with our safety, welding, and engineering requirements.
Lessons from incidents
- Management and leadership give input following all safety incidents.
- Management and leadership discuss with internal operations personnel “what went wrong” and “corrective action” to prevent further occurrences within the operation.
- We endeavor to learn from incidents within our industry, e.g., structural failures and worksite accidents.
At Tindall, sustainability is one our top priorities. We've adopted many practices to make sure every project is environmentally-friendly and cuts down on waste.
- We work to manage and minimize our environmental footprint in both our facilities and on our projects.
- Since the best way to manage compliance is through prevention control, we maintain state-specific permits for air, water, and waste disposal.
- Our maintenance personnel take preventive action to prevent releases.
- We recycle resources such as paper, steel, and scrap concrete in a responsible manner.
