DynCorp International Regional Construction Team in Afghanistan is Committed to Safety

LOGCAP safety dyncorp intlMany of DynCorp International’s team members working in support of the Logistics Civil Augmentation Program (LOGCAP) assist with major construction projects throughout southern Afghanistan.

Between December 2012 and March 2013, the LOGCAP Regional Construction Team (RCT) constructed a Central Receiving and Shipping Point (CRSP) yard, and built and provided power to more than 50 facilities, built five storage structures and installed nearly 5,000 feet of chain link fencing at a Forward Operating Base (FOB).

Putting in more than 25,000 man hours during the intensive construction period, the RCT team’s main priority was always safety. As part of DI’s Health, Safety and Environment (HSE)’s “Target Zero” initiative, RCT team members successfully completed all projects incident-free.

“Working together, the RCT and HSE teams demonstrated a culture of safety in project execution,” explained DynCorp International deputy director Steven Zrake. “The RCT’s motto is ‘We Work Safely’ and they demonstrated that to perfection.”

The HSE team often works very closely, sometimes side-by-side, with project and field staff striving to instill a culture that places safety above all else. The HSE team builds a culture of safety, encouraging team members to “Lead with Character” and “Do the Right Thing,” always keeping safety the top priority.
