Zero Harm

Led by our parent company, Balfour Beatty plc, we are engaged in the boldest safety initiative in the history of the construction industry—we call it Zero Harm®.

Zero Harm is more than just a campaign–it’s a way of life. It is a way of taking our already strong safety record to the next level, an unprecedented level within our industry.

As our Chairman and CEO, Robert Van Cleave, puts it, "This is not only behavioral, it’s also an economic choice that we have made to pursue Zero Harm whether it’s reimbursed or not, and whether it’s expected or not. We’re pursuing Zero Harm simply because it’s the right thing to do."
