Brandon Tyler Batt
Safety Manager
Manhattan Construction Co.
Washington, D.C. Division

“Brandon is actively working to change the mindset from ‘Safety First’ to ‘Family First.’ He recently started a jobsite program where each employee has the opportunity to sign a safety pledge to the project and to his or her family. With the pledge, employees bring in a photo of them with their family, and all photos are displayed in a collage to highlight how many people are affected by jobsite safety practices. He organizes team-building events where employees can get to know each other’s strengths and weaknesses, and includes new Manhattan employees when developing programs to gain fresh ideas regarding jobsite safety.”
