Safety

Placing A Priority On Workplace Protection

Placing A Priority On Workplace Protection

Safety is an integral element emphasized in all of KDW's operations. Our safety processes utilize the TCA Safety System®, which is modeled on the global International Standards Organization's ISO 9000 Quality System methodology and aligns with, or exceeds, all recognized quality systems currently applied to safety including OHSAS 18001 and the proposed ISO 45001 standard.

Safety For All

These practices include integration of all field personnel in safety process implementation and accountability - meaning that each project team recognizes their responsibility for safety as equal to their duty to complete a client's project on time and on budget. Each superintendent owns their role as safety director for their project.

Safety Systems

KDW employs a multi-pronged approach to development and management of sustainable and scalable safety processes. This includes, but is not limited to, management commitment and direct involvement in safety leadership and accountability, a continuing education program to enhance knowledge of specific safety issues, written regulatory safety programs aligned with our discipline, short service worker programs, third-party safety observations through field audits, and managing third-party safety observations via the TCA proprietary predictive analytics software (TCA Instant!®). By using predictive analytics, KDW can identify trends before an incident or injury occurs and proactively interrupt that trend and influence safety outcomes on site. From quality systems to the latest cognitive neuroscience techniques on managing self-organizing systems - and every construction site is a self-organizing system - KDW brings state-of-the-art methodologies to both our design/build services as well as our sustainable safety practices.

KDW built our new shop addition. They helped me with the Design and planning of the build. They did a wonderful job from the beginning to the end. I would highly recommend KDW and Rolf for any construction needs. They are a top notch company and I am proud to tell people who built our building and very proud of our new shop.

Working with KDW to build our state of the art High Bay/Heavy Lift Fabrication Shop was nothing short of pleasurable and professional.  Their knowledge of construction techniques is amazing and every sub-contractor that was used did impeccable work. We could not have chosen a more competent General Contractor on our million dollar expansion project.

People make the company.  The folks at KDW are talented, professional, friendly, and second to none.  In spite of the full book of business they keep, I never once felt like my calls were ignored, rushed, or unimportant.  Architects, project managers, superintendents.....they were all top-notch.  Our design/build experience with KDW exceeded all our expectations.

Their ability to adapt and meet strict deadlines will astonish you. They were an integral part to the true success of our construction phase and allowed us to become the Premier Water Park in Austin.
