Kristi May
Senior Safety Manager
Hensel Phelps
San Diego, CA

“Two years ago, the district had three recordable injuries. Determining these were due to training gaps, Kristi and her team built a training regimen to be conducted in the field, not in the classroom. Three times a week, all carpenters, laborers and finishers practice together the task scheduled for the following days. This has engaged all employees to ask more detailed technical and safety questions, and to provide input. The training approach developed the habit of cross-functional team hazard analysis. The training helped the district achieve zero recordable injuries last year.”
