This commercial construction firm is 100% employee-owned, and staff members (and their loved ones) appreciate the culture of safety in this workplace. Over 700 buildong projects can be taking place all at once, ranging from office towers and condominiums to bridges, airports and petrochemical plants. Yet, PCL maintains a safety record 5 times better than the national average of its industry. Outstanding stats are celebrated during safety week with truck-shaped cupcake, trivia contests and safety-related prizes. Now, there’s a new requirement: all meetings with five or more employees begin with a discussion on safety that raises awareness on how to prevent injuries at home and at work. Read the Great Place to Work review here.
