Safety Hunter Keeps Eye On The Rising Tiers

Hard-hatted Hunter was on the construction site of the George-and-Orchard Street portion of the $838 million Yale New Haven neurosciences center rising in West River. While workers from Turner Construction worked on the first tiers of the garage, Hunter monitored their safety. Hunter said he has seen no slips, no falls, no major injuries during his months stationed at Yale New Haven. Two hours into the job Tuesday morning, that was holding true: ​“So far, so good. I haven’t seen any safety issues. Let’s see what happens the rest of the day.” Turner has had him doing the safety superintendent work at Yale New Haven since June. He is responsible for checking in on a half dozen sites, mostly the West River project, but also on York Street.
