Safety in all of J.M. Wilkerson Construction Co., Inc.’s operations is not only a company goal, but a requirement. We create a culture in which safety is a core value. Our commitment is to provide a safe and productive environment for everyone involved with our projects. At no time will safety be compromised because of cost. OSHA standards are met or exceeded at all times.
It is JMW’s belief that accidents can be prevented through planning, training and a cooperative effort in all areas of our operations, with our goal being to eliminate all injuries. This goal is accomplished by the following safe working practices on all of our construction sites.
Our superintendents and foreman are required to keep their safety training and education current. Each superintendent conducts weekly site safety meetings and inspections. We also utilize available safety resources such as the AGC’s Site Safety Training Programs and the Construction Safety Competency Training courses.

J.M. Wilkerson Construction Co., Inc. is a technology-forward organization. JMW’s IT Department helps keep our project teams up to date with new and useful technology. JMW’s vision for technology is to provide its team members with the best resources and tools available to complete a project efficiently and successfully. We utilize software and apps to collaborate and share information with all project stakeholders. This ensures that everyone has the most up-to-date information and project documents. The end goal is to prevent discrepancies and issues, thus saving time and money.
JMW has developed a program that allows our team members to complete tasks and send items to the main office using phones and tablets. Now, any team member with a mobile device can complete a safety inspection, document an RFI, or mark up a plan on their iPad from the field.
Superintendents use Apps to accomplish the tasks:
– Complete Safety Inspections
– View, modify and mark up Project Plans
– Punch List generation
– RFIs and Submittals
– Take Progress Photos using the application
– Complete Daily Reports and Inspections
– Manage Employee Time
– View/Approve Invoices
The JMW team reviews and beta-tests new applications regularly to determine if they will help solve for a current workflow problem or replace a current, under-performing app. Technology is constantly changing and improving, and J.M. Wilkerson wants to do the same.
