suffolk safer together

Our entire safety methodology is defined by real people and real relationships. Because we know that in the end, when you can identify with someone’s personal life story you will do everything in your power to make sure that individual makes it home safely at the end of the workday.

Studies have shown that construction workers are more productive and efficient when they feel safer on a project site. The innovative Lightweight Protection System (LPS) or “cocoon” installed on Suffolk’s 60-story Millennium Tower project in Boston was an important factor in our innovative safety approach on that project. The LPS envelops large exterior sections of the building to ensure that workers, tools and equipment do not fall over the side during construction. The LPS is slotted into a rail system that allows the massive panels to rise with the increasing height of the building as floors are added during construction. The mesh design also allows natural light to illuminate work areas while protecting workers from the elements. Our personal approach to safety combined with our commitment to the latest innovations help our team members feel safer because they are safer. And you just cannot put a price on peace of mind.
