Shea maintains Master Builder status for fifth consecutive year

An industry leader in safety

Highlands Ranch – Jobsite safety is integral part of Shea Homes’ commitment to quality and integrity, and the Colorado homebuilder is thrilled to have maintained its Master Builder status level of the Homesafe® Colorado Partnership for a fifth year.  In 2015, the Home Builders Association (HBA) of Metro Denver in partnership with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) awarded Shea Homes the highest honor bestowed under the HomeSafe® Colorado Partnership granting the homebuilder Level 3 Master Builder status. Shea has worked diligently to keep that status each year since. After a recent annual verification audit, it was determined that Shea has retained the Master Builder status level of the Homesafe® Colorado Partnership through 2020.

“Shea Homes has the distinguished honor of accomplishing “Master Builder” status five years in a row through the acclaimed HBA/OSHA Partnership program we administer through our Jobsite Safety Committee. Shea Homes’ unwavering commitment and execution toward the highest and best safety practices is truly outstanding and I congratulate Shea Homes on this well-deserved designation,” said Chérie Talbert, CEO, Home Builders Association of Metro Denver.

In pursuit of achieving and maintaining this annually awarded status, Shea Homes’ employees participate in the HomeSafe® Colorado Safety Orientation Training Program, HomeSafe® Colorado Field Focus Four Training Program, and the OSHA Construction Safety Course. This training lays the groundwork for creating and positively reinforcing a culture of safety on Shea jobsites.  To meet necessary safety goals, Shea Homes continually reviews and evaluates its comprehensive safety and health program, provides ongoing employee training, and designates competent staff with the required training to recognize hazards and take corrective actions.

Shea Homes strives to be a leader in all facets of the homebuilding industry including jobsite safety.  “Maintaining this status is a significant accomplishment for Shea that underscores our commitment to pursue and achieve the highest level of safety on the jobsite,” said Jeff Palumbo, Safety and Environmental Manager, Shea Homes.
