This book has been written for the sole purpose of eliminating accidents and fatalities by helping organizations develop a World-Class Safety Program – a safety culture supported by all employees and a work environment where accidents are not tolerated; a zero-accident mentality.
David B. Walls is president and chief executive officer of Austin Industries, a diverse construction company owned 100 percent by its employees. Austin’s operating companies – Austin Bridge & Road, Austin Commercial and Austin Industrial – provide preconstruction and construction services through a variety of delivery methods, such as construction management at risk, design-build, alternative delivery, program management, and design-bid-build. Austin projects include commercial office buildings, airports, hospitals, hotels, stadiums, universities, educational facilities, bridges, railroads, and roads and highways. Austin also performs plant services, including turnarounds, maintenance, specialty services, and large and small capital projects.
His personal goal is to get everyone “passionate about safety” without experiencing a fatality!
