Stand Down Week Achieves 100% Participation

For the second straight year, Kirlin Builders has achieved 100% participation from our construction professionals and subcontractors in completing OSHA’s Stand Down to Prevent Falls in Construction.

Fall Protection is one of the most commonly cited OSHA standard violations. In 2014, the year before the program was implemented, 337 of the 874 fatalities on the job site in construction were as a result of falls from elevation. These are preventable tragedies that with awareness, training, and a team buy-in concept can be drastically reduced.

At Kirlin Builders job sites from Maryland to Hawaii, each of our construction professionals led sessions with our subcontractors to review proper fall protection measures on the job site – notably ones specific to our ongoing projects. That’s more than 75 projects at over 33 locations across the United States. Kirlin Builders construction managers and our subcontractor reviewed proper use of equipment, checking for safe processes, and being proactive about spotting and stopping unsafe practices.

Last year we were part of the over 2.5 million workers who took part in this nationwide effort. This year, OSHA expects more than 5 million participants to Stand Down to Prevent Falls in Construction. Thank you to all our dedicated site staff who made our 2016 Stand Down week a rousing success, and to 100% participation for 2017!

Kirlin Builders Attend Blue Book Showcase at FedEx Field

On April 21st, the Kirlin Builders estimating team was in full force (photo below) at the Blue Book Showcase at FedEx Field in Landover, Maryland. The event, attended by some 700 subcontractors in all the major construction trades, served as a great opportunity to meet with new and prospective subcontracting partners to help them and Kirlin Builders pursue new project opportunities in the Washington D.C. Metropolitan area. We were thrilled to meet several small and minority businesses who are primed to work with us on projects in the coming months and years.
