Setting a Standard of Excellence in Safety: The Amazon Distribution Center Project

At OECS, our mission is to make sure everyone goes home safely to their families. Recently, we had the privilege of playing a vital role in ensuring the safety and success of the groundbreaking Amazon Distribution Center projects in Minnesota. Here’s how our expertise and dedication to safety made a significant impact on this project’s success.

Crafting Tailored Safety Strategies for Success

When tasked with enhancing safety measures and protocols for the construction of the Amazon Distribution Center, we approached the challenge with precision and care. Recognizing the unique demands of the distribution center environment, we meticulously crafted a comprehensive safety strategy tailored specifically to this project. Our goal was clear:  To address potential hazards and ensure the well-being of the workforce.

Identifying and Mitigating Risks with Precision for the distribution center

Our first step was conducting thorough risk assessments. We left no stone unturned in identifying potential hazards within the distribution center environment. Armed with this knowledge, we swiftly devised effective mitigation plans to safeguard both personnel and assets. Our proactive approach ensured that potential risks were addressed promptly, minimizing the likelihood of safety incidents.

Fostering Collaboration and Providing Guidance for the distribution center

Collaboration was at the heart of our approach to safety consulting. We worked closely with Amazon’s project management team and the general contractor, fostering a partnership built on trust and mutual respect. Through one-on-one safety guidance sessions with the workforce, we provided safety training and coaching. This hands-on approach ensured that every member of the team was equipped with the knowledge and skills needed to navigate potential safety challenges effectively and, ultimately, create a culture of safety.

Exceeding Expectations and Setting New Standards

By prioritizing safety and seamlessly integrating it into the project’s framework, we not only met but exceeded OSHA standards. Our dedication to excellence and unwavering commitment to safety set a new benchmark for projects of this scale. Thanks to our efforts, the construction of the Amazon Distribution Center was not only successful but also served as a shining example of how prioritizing safety can lead to unparalleled success.

Prioritizing Safety for Future Success

At OECS, we believe that safety should always come first in every project. Our role in the construction of the Amazon Distribution Center exemplifies this belief. Through comprehensive safety strategies, thorough risk assessments, collaboration and dedication to excellence, we ensured the success of this groundbreaking project.
