Wright Construction Group announced that Johnny Limbaugh, Director of Business Development, is one of fifty-nine professionals to earn the Safety Certification for Transportation Project Professionals™ (SCTPP) credential over the past four months. Since the program launched in 2016, 360 individuals from across the country have earned the prestigious credential.
 
The program was launched with the aim to significantly reduce—or ideally eliminate—the 700 motorist and worker fatalities, and nearly 50,000 injuries that occur annually in and around U.S. transportation project sites. It is targeted at significantly elevating safety awareness among the thousands of transportation project workers across the industry—planners, designers, owners, field supervisors and inspectors—who are in decision-making roles and have the competencies necessary to identify and mitigate potentially life-threatening on-site risks from project conception through completion. 
 
“Our goal is to help cause a demonstrable reduction in the number of deaths and injuries that occur on and around transportation project sites each year,” ARTBA President Pete Ruane said. “We believe we can do that if all of the key decision-makers, from project inception through completion, have safety top of mind. By earning the certification, Johnny has demonstrated competency of identifying and mitigating potential hazards for workers and motorists commonly found in transportation work zones.”

“Safety is one of the four pillars of our corporate value proposition,” said Fred Edman, President of Wright Construction. “We are excited to be first amongst our peers to add the SCTPP program to our ongoing commitment to safe working environments for the sake of our people, our subcontractors, and for the reputation of our clients.”

In May 2018, the program earned American National Standards Institute (ANSI) accreditation under ISO/IEC 17024:2012 international standard. The SCTPP exam certifies knowledge in: assessing project risks; creating project safety plans; implementing and conducting ongoing evaluation of a site-specific operational safety plan; and conducting incident investigations. 

“Johnny being 1 of just 360 individuals in the nation to receive the SCTPP credential is a testament to the dedication of the Wright Construction Team when it comes to safety,” said Andy Powell, Vice President of Wright Construction.
