The Virtua Hospital construction project in Voorhees was a 670,000 square foot, $335 Million dollar replacement facility for the old nearby hospital. The new state-of-the-art inpatient facility is connected to a regional ambulatory care facility, a medical office building, a support services building, and a central energy plant; all located on located on a 120-acre lot along heavily travelled Route 73. Due to the size of the project, there are several large contractors working concurrently with approximately 350 to 400 construction workers on site at peak construction.

The general contractor (GC), Turner, raised the bar with safety rules by going above and beyond OSHA regulations and required safety supervisors to enforce their policy. HazTek was hired by Falasca Mechanical and Petrocelli Electric, two of the main subcontractors, to provide third-party safety oversight ensuring compliance and contractor safety on site; duties including weekly tool box talks (safety meetings), Job Hazard Assessments (JHAs), hot work and roof access permits, incident/accident investigations, equipment and tool inspections, fall protection and personal protective equipment monitoring, safety training and regular safety audits.

Upon completion of project Falasca Mechanical and Petrocelli Electric were not been issued any fines and both contractors were awarded contractor of the month by Turner. HazTek has built and maintained a great relationship with management and the workers of both contractors as well as earned the respect of the GC and the owner representative as a professional safety group having been instrumental in reducing safety issues and injuries on this job.

To date, Falasca Mechanical and Petrocelli Electric have not been issued any fines and both contractors have been awarded contractor of the month by Turner.
