Trinidad's leadership team has executed projects in some of the most critical construction environments: Surgery Suites and Intensive Care Units, Nuclear Power Plants, Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Plants, National Laboratories. We've drawn from this experience to develop one of the industries most stringent and comprehensive Safety Programs!
Every day at every Job Site, as well as the Trinidad Offices we start with a Safety Huddle, and Daily Job Safety Analysis. What are we doing today? What are the risks? What can we do to mitigate those risks?
What is the worst thing that could possibly happen today? We ask this question, so that everyone understands just how critical safety is, every day, on every job!
Throughout the day, every situation is thoroughly examined, multiple times, in advance of work, and continually reassessed to ensure that work is being executed in the safest manner possible.
Trinidad has a weekly Superintendent Safety Meeting, and Monthly Safety Committee meeting, all directed by our Corporate Safety Manager.

Change the Face of Construction, that is our mission! As we've grown, Trinidad has shifted it's focus from Success to Significance. Where can we make an impact? Where do we have influence?
The construction industry and trades are historically underrepresented in regard to minority and female involvement. It's as much about a lack of awareness, as it has been about opportunity. How can we change that?
