(Hard) Hats off to Boulder Creek Neighborhoods for successfully completing the necessary steps to reach the highest honor awarded within the HomeSafe Colorado Partnership Agreement – Master Builder Status.
The much sought after, rarely achieved Master Builder status is the culmination of several years’ worth of dedication to safety. Boulder Creek Neighborhoods began their quest for Master Builder in 2015 after a routine OSHA audit of the Boulder Creek job sites. Members of the Boulder Creek construction team recognized the opportunity to further a culture of safety and a more consistent process to both meet and exceed industry safety standards.
Boulder Creek quickly established a task force comprised of four construction professionals to map a course to creating a world-class culture of safety. This team dedicated time and resources, taking the initial step of joining the HBA of Metro Denver’s JobSite Safety Committee. Boulder Creek took advantage of the resources available within the Committee to examine and improve their overall safety program. They fully emerged themselves into the JobSite Safety Committee and quickly became a go-to member, supporting the programs in a mutually beneficial environment.
Quoting Boulder Creek Community Superintendent and Safety Team Lead, Jacob Janisch – “Throughout our journey we have seen a cultural change within the Boulder Creek community, including our employees, trade partners and industry peers. The Safety Team has grown and now encompasses office representation and a land development representative. We now have a high level of accountability. A company full of pride, safety and accomplishment.”
The Boulder Creek Safety Team is confident their efforts have been successful. In September BNC proudly invited OSHA onto construction sites for an informal audit. The result of the audit was the formal qualification for the highest honor within the HomeSafe Colorado program; Master Builder. One of only two qualified Master Builders recognized, Boulder Creek Neighborhoods will enjoy all the education and benefits afforded under the program for a period of one year.
HomeSafe is a Partnership Agreement between the HBA of Metro Denver and OSHA. For more information regarding the JobSite Safety Committee or the HomeSafe Agreement mark your calendar and attend a Committee meeting the third Tuesday of each month in the HBA lower level conference room at 2:00.
