Committed to Safety at All Levels

People come first at Baker, which is why we have established an Incident and Injury Free (IIF) culture. IIF is a personal and organizational commitment to create work environments that protect the safety and well-being of our co-workers, project partners, clients, families, and friends.


  • Accepting personal responsibility for our own and others’ safety
  • Sharing knowledge, best practices, tools, and resources
  • Investing in learning and development
  • Taking action, always and immediately
  • Expecting similar dedication from our construction partners
  • Honoring people who live safe and healthy lives



Our Incident and Injury Free (IIF) culture is backed by proven strategies, policies, and programs for recognizing and removing safety hazards and for maintaining safe operations.

New-Hire Orientation

All Baker co-workers attend safety orientation training before beginning their work.

Scheduled Training

Throughout the year, Baker schedules OSHA recertification training sessions as well as training programs that are targeted to specific positions or tasks.

Periodic Job Review

Baker’s corporate safety director and Safety Task Force conduct periodic job reviews to ensure full compliance with Baker’s safety policies, OSHA, and any other applicable local, state, or federal regulations.

Accident Reporting and Documentation

Accident reports are reviewed by the safety director, regional safety manager, and project manager, and corrective action is taken as required.

Weekly “Tool Box” Discussions

Every week, first-line supervisors hold 15-minute “Tool Box” safety talks with their teams. In addition, supervisors use this time to review recent injuries, unsafe acts, additions to hazard communications, and upcoming work that requires special precautions.

“΢Ƶ’s people, the quality of their work, their focus on continuous improvement, and their culture of safety have made me one of their biggest salesmen. Their use of ‘we’ when problems arise is key to making sure we get the job done right.”
