Safety is our highest value. Today and every day.
In a situation that is changing daily, we are continually monitoring new developments and adjusting our response to help flatten the curve and mitigate the impact of COVID-19. The safety and well-being of our employees, their families, our self-performed subsidiary RDF Builders Co., our partners and our communities remains our highest priority.
As Walsh Construction Co. builds critical affordable housing, health and community service centers throughout the Northwest, we will continue to evaluate our safety measures and standards throughout our operations, ensuring the well-being of our employees, their families and the communities we serve.
We will continue to follow guidelines and recommendations set by government authorities, the World Health Organization, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and local health authorities as we work to act responsibly to help contain the spread of COVID-19. The guidance includes following government directions that classify construction as an essential business in many of the areas we operate.

“Safety – there is no off season."
We think safety: every week, every day, every hour.
Our commitment to safety extends beyond the confines of the jobsite and involves the entire neighborhood in which we are building. Careful planning, construction phasing and experience with safety and site management allow us to run even the largest construction site with the utmost attention to the safety of all workers and persons in the neighborhood.
The driving force is to reward and recognize positive, safe behavior. Much of the construction industry records safety-related information in a negative light – number of accidents, number of days lost, etc. What WALSH does is flip that focus, so that everyone involved in a project looks for, sees and recognizes employees who work safe and who make the effort to change what could potentially be unsafe behaviors.
For our employees, this is a resource guide for registration into Safety, the WALSH Way.
