Safety is everyone’s responsibility at Exxel Pacific. The company built this office campus at Southport in Renton.
Exxel Pacific says safety success is a result of empowering its workforce to meet the expectation that safety is everyone’s responsibility. Engagement from all levels and continuous education are equally required in addition to Exxel’s safety orientation program. Specialty contractors’ safety plans and job hazard analyses are reviewed by both the project team and the safety department to ensure that the contractor meets the minimum safety requirements. This process allows teammates to become familiar with the requirements and codes established by L&I and Exxel. The company also establishes safety expectations for specialty contractors and reviews their scope of work and how it will be performed. Potential problems can be resolved before they arise. Team members can learn the work procedures, potential hazards and the corrective actions that specialty contractors have established.
