Safety at BrightView
BrightView uses the “Daily Safety Game Plan” to ensure that "No one gets hurt."

BrightView is committed to the safety of its team members, and with thousands of them coming to work each day across the United States daily, the company has defined and developed a “Daily Safety Game Plan.”

The plan begins the moment team members arrive in the morning and lasts until everyone steps foot into their homes at night.

To ensure safety, the “Daily Safety Game Plan” focuses on preparation for work, safe driving, individual work at each job site, and post-production.

“Our commitment to safety is reinforced through daily morning huddles and weekly tailgate meetings, new-hire orientations, and a buddy system for new team members,” said Jeff Herold, BrightView President, Landscape Maintenance.

“Our intent was to establish a field-focused work group that allowed the maintenance organization to develop national standards and share best practices, tools, and training to accelerate our performance in the same way we have driven our safety program,” said Jeff Herold, BrightView President, Landscape Maintenance. “OpX begins and ends with safety. We will never stop striving for a zero-injury workplace.”
