“Safety is everyone’s responsibility, which means we cannot turn a blind eye to unsafe work practices, improper use of PPE, site harassment, discrimination — all of these things are unacceptable,” says Rosendin’s Executive Vice President, Justin Tinoco, in a sobering video in which he describes the moment when he was buried alive in a trench as a third-year apprentice and how his co-worker’s responsibility for him saved his life. “And we need to look out for our brothers and sisters who are working with us every day.”
