Bovis Lend Lease of Tampa is one of three Florida locations operated by this international project management and construction firm. Its global footprint reaches 30 countries. The Tampa office’s Chris Thomas, safety manager, first learned of the SHARP program from a safety systems professor in college. “He told us about the consultation service and what kind of help it will offer when we entered the professional world.” Now, Chris works for a SHARP company and says the recognition will “motivate our people, maintain its already high level of safety and inspire our subcontractors and clients to pursue safety as a priority in their business.”

The Bovis Lend Lease Tampa office developed a detailed pre-task plan for dismantling their tower cranes. This plan is now used to teach the crane operator apprenticeship program. Bovis Lend Lease’s “Incident and Injury Free” philosophy is an integral part of its corporate culture. The company’s commitment to health and safety extends to employees, clients, suppliers, subcontractors and stakeholders. “Everyone has the right to go home to their families each and every day,” Chris states. The company’s average DART rate is 0.0, while the industry average is 2.8.

In addition to the SHARP award, Bovis Lend Lease Tampa received the 2008 ABC Business Achievement Award in Diversity and a 2008 ABC Safety STAR Recognition from the Associated Builders and Contractors, Tampa Bay Chapter.
