Learning and Innovation are core values at McDonald York. Being the best builders means we seek new and better ways to do our jobs. The best builders are never finished learning. For this reason, we provide our employees with technical, management, and leadership classes that prepare them for current assignments and help them achieve long-term career goals.
The Learning and Innovation Program (LIP) was established to educate, train and develop our employees and leaders to put them on a path to success. And because we believe construction services will be delivered differently in the future, innovation by contractors will be necessary for them to successfully adapt to a changing industry.
All employees undergo continuous safety training through new employee orientations, supervisor safety training, OSHA construction safety training and safety "Toolbox" meetings. Employees are trained in proper use of personal protective equipment and emergency procedures. Supervisors participate both as students and instructors, with specific training topics assigned to each.
