Future First

Building a Safer Tomorrow

At Frampton, family is at the root of everything we do. We’re a family-owned company, and we care deeply about our people and their loved ones. That’s why we’ve made a pledge to ensure everyone who sets foot on a jobsite, from team members to trade partners to visitors, returns home safely to their families every single day.

Forged from experience accrued across 28 years and hundreds of safely executed projects, our Future First safety program is designed to prevent workplace incidents, injuries, and illnesses. Our goal: zero incidents, zero accidents.

By making commitments today, we’re building a safer tomorrow.

Future First, A Safer Tomorrow

A Culture Of Safety

At Frampton Construction, safety is not optional. We’ve created a strong culture of safety in our offices and on our jobsites through practices like toolbox talks, safety stand-downs, and safety recognition luncheons. Most of all, our team members do not look the other way. Every employee, regardless of position or tenure, is empowered to stop work until a safety issue is resolved.

Training Standards

Frampton’s field personnel are certified in First Aid, CPR and 30-hour OSHA training. Additionally, all of our superintendents are Procore Safety Qualified and have completed Fall Protection Awareness Training. Beyond these standards, our team members regularly participate in additional training to prepare for project-specific challenges.

Toolbox Safety Talks

Safety starts with communication. Every Tuesday, work on all of our jobsites begins with a toolbox safety talk. This is a time when our team discusses a fundamental element of workplace safety and covers the tasks and challenges ahead for that week.

Experience Modification Rate (EMR)

EMR is a construction safety metric used by the insurance industry to measure workers compensation risk. Anything lower than the industry average of 1.0 is considered exceptional. At Frampton, we’re proud to consistently maintain an EMR well below the national average and in the industry superior range.

A Proactive Approach

We're staying one step ahead by identifying potential risks before they become a problem.

Custom Safety Measures

Every job has its own unique set of challenges. Practices like site-specific safety training, pre-task analysis, and Procore trend tracking help our team anticipate and avoid hazards.

AHA CPR Training

Construction industry workers are disproportionately affected by major risk factors for heart disease and stroke, so we’ve partnered with the American Heart Association to offer CPR training to our team members.

OSHA VPP Participant

We participate in OSHAs Voluntary Protection Programs (VPP), which promotes effective worksite-based safety and health through rigorous inspections of our jobsites.

Safety Audits

We’ve invited our insurance provider to carry out quarterly safety audits. These help us stay ahead of the game in reducing risk.

What does safety mean to you?

“Safety is a mindset. Everything you do starts and finishes with safety.”

How do you walk the walk when it comes to job site safety?

“It starts at the very beginning of each day. You put on your hard hat, vest, and safety glasses. It gets you in the ‘I'm at work and ready to go’ mindset, and it’s the best way to lead by example.”

What's your top safety goal in 2021?

“It’s the same as every year: To make sure that every person on my jobsites goes home to their families.”

Dan Moore

Project Manager

What does safety mean to you?

“Everyone has the right to go home at night. If a task can not be performed safely, the activity needs to be stopped and another method or procedure needs to be developed.”

How do you walk the walk when it comes to job site safety?

“First: Always make sure I am wearing the proper PPE. Second: Make on-the-spot corrections.”

Charles Bowman

Project Engineer

What does safety mean to you?

“Safety is surpassing the industry standards. It is ensuring that no mother ever has to see her child injured due to something I could have prevented.”

How do you walk the walk when it comes to job site safety?

“If it looks dangerous, it probably is. Call out suspected hazards and stop careless injuries.”

What's been your proudest moment working for Frampton?

“I always get excited when I turn over that final set of keys and let a new owner take over their building.”

"In our industry, it’s imperative to look at everything through a lens of safety. Safety is something we will never take for granted and never sacrifice."
