Darrin Ball - Senior Project Manager

Years with Skanska

What is your safety pledge?

My pledge is to continue to lead by example on a daily basis. I have been performing the IFE Orientation trainings to new employees since 2004 in the Boston Office. They help me stay grounded to the IFE principle that everyone should go home in the same condition they arrived onsite. That is our responsibility as managers.

How has IFE impacted my life?

Keeping focus on safety or simply being aware when not at work. There are so many other things we do daily that put us at risk, and we generally brush it off as part of life. My children and wife are given permission to correct me when Im not wearing a seatbelt or reaching for the phone in the car. As Mike McNally used to say, everyone is a lifeguard when it comes to safety.
