Kerry Wiggins’ career has always been in the safety field. Hard work and dedication have gotten her to the position she holds today, but she never forgets where she started and tries every day to be the best mentor she can be. Kerry engages the people on her jobsites to help her create and be a part of an injury-free culture.
“Our employees’ safety is our number one priority. No job is worth getting hurt for,” said Kerry. Working as a safety manager on heavy construction jobs takes a lot of technical knowledge and experience. Safety programs improve and data becomes more accurate and accessible, but Kerry’s safety successes have almost always been traced back to one thing: personal responsibility.
”We make safety personal. Respect people, recognize people, and hold people accountable. Turner’s ‘Tell Me’ program, which empowers every employee to stop an unsafe act, is one of our best tools because it engages people to interact with each other. At the end of the day, nothing is more important than all of us going home to our families.”
