Conti has earned the Liberty Mutual 2016 Gold Safety Award for achieving better than industry safety performance on its $153 million New Jersey I-295 Direct Connection project in Camden County. This is Conti’s second time to receive this honor.
Liberty Mutual gives this award annually to only 5% of its policy holders, using a stringent scoring profile it has compiled for the construction industry. Conti’s achievement on the I-295 highway/bridge project includes working over 280,000 hours without a lost time incident from June 2014 to September 2016, and maintaining an incident rate 50% better than the Industry.
“Our success over the last year is the result of utilizing the many best practice management tools we have at our disposal,” says Greg Kerrigan, Conti Project Manager. Delivered for the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT), the project entails reconfiguring traffic flow along the ramps and bridges that carry the heavy volume of I-295 traffic across Routes 42 and I-76, and straightens out the infamous “Al-Jo curve.”
