CCA is proud to present Graham Group with the 2015 CCA National Safety Award for its commitment to safety at all levels and for its established track-record of continuous improvement.

In 2015 Graham’s Health, Safety & Environment Management System team focused on several key initiatives, including improving overall HSE performance which resulted in a 90% reduction in Loss-Time incident frequency and severity.
Introducing new Leadership Engagement Indicator or LEI software with improved reporting capabilities has enabled Graham’s managers to focus on their leadership responsibilities. The firm’s Operational Leaders have also collaborated to create an internal training program called Builders’ Framework. This program was developed to offer technical training in key areas of building, with safety being a significant component, and in 2013, a Learning Portal, a tool for employees to enhance their job-related knowledge with a multitude of safety training resources and customized safety tools, was launched. All training records and competency assessments are entered into the company’s Performance System for trending and used to identify and schedule required training.

Since implementing its HSE Management System and improvement initiatives, there has been a 70% decrease in recordable injuries, a 97% decrease in lost time incidents and a 99% decrease in severity. This includes over 1 million hours of zero loss-time incidents across multiple divisions, and numerous divisions exceeding one million hours without recordable injuries.
