UMC aims for the highest level of compliance, preparation and awareness — operating as a team, with each person responsible for the safety of every other person. Its crews work carefully and deliberately, watching out for one another, and regularly take steps toward recognizing and correcting hazards. The challenge is that this mindset of safety, that has been ingrained in the very fiber of the work UMC does, extends beyond its boundaries. UMC believes in focusing on the success of the entire team. After all, there is one objective — a safe and successful project — and from the client’s perspective, all workers are on the same team.
This belief and mindset have led UMC to become more of a partner and consultant to other contractors and subcontractors — helping them with their safety programs. UMC takes on this additional role to help set the tone for each jobsite and drive safety. UMC also does not differentiate subcontractor performance from its own; its subcontractors are a reflection of UMC and are held to the same standards of UMC’s own personnel. UMC accomplishes this by early planning, coordination and communication before project starts and during planning phases. A testament to UMC’s success is its AGC of Washington Grand Award for Safety Excellence — an award that is almost exclusively given out to general contractors.
