Swinerton is the latest general contractor to join the NEXT Coalition made up of leading critical infrastructure and construction companies to promote and share industry safety best practices. Black & Veatch, DPR Construction, Haskell, McCarthy Building Companies, and Swinerton are leveraging their deep safety expertise and best practices in a campaign to ensure the well-being of crews and office team members facing complex challenges posed by the coronavirus outbreak.

“COVID is a new safety risk for the construction industry that requires a rapid coordinated effort to ensure our employees go home safe every day,” said Eric Law, Senior Director Technology & Innovation at Swinerton. “Instead of every firm trying to solve the same problem, we can work together to improve safety across our industry. This approach ultimately allows for faster evaluation of new solutions in response to the COVID pandemic.”
