The RED Code Explained: Responsibility
No one gets into the Superbowl or the World Series without a lifetime of planning and practice. Success is more than showing up with the right skills to get the job done. Success comes when you plan for a championship effort from the very beginning.
We know we’ve got to have a solid plan if we want to execute in the field. Construction is tough, and it comes with a lot of variables: manpower, supplies, tools, site access, congested job sites, weather and more.
We know that we’re the most successful when we have the right people, the right tools and the right gear in place before we need it. Planning is a daily responsibility for everyone – from the field team all the way to the general superintendents.
- Do I have my basic tools ready each day? Are they in good working condition?
- Do I understand the daily goal?
- Are there tasks that I need help or instruction to complete safely?
Questions to ask your foreman or team lead:
- What is the best way to complete this task safely and efficiently?
- What can I do to help the rest of the team?
- What needs to be finished to get us to a good stopping point?
- How can we prepare for a great start tomorrow?
