Our Way of Being

The Bay West Way of Being is born out of the company’s Core Values.

Born out of our core values, we use this Way of Being to guide us in our business decisions, our interactions with our customers and vendors, and in our interactions with each other. Our integrity as individuals and as an organization depends on keeping our word in all our agreements.

Communication is the core of our success.

We continually improve our communication. When challenges occur, I agree to communicate only to the person who can resolve them. Before communicating, I will ask myself:

Are these words true?
Are these words necessary?
Are these words constructive and forwarding?

We are a learning organization.

A learning organization can be described as “An organization in which people continually expand their individual capacities to create the results they truly desire, where new and expansive patterns of thinking are nurtured, where collective aspiration is set free, and where people are continually learning to learn together.”

We seek your advice.

Employee feedforward and collective exchange is the foundation for continuous improvement and Bay West’s future success. We seek your advice; we must hear your perceptions, beliefs, and recommendations. Employees who tactfully and supportively provide feedforward to peers, supervisors, managers, and owners are meeting one of their most important performance goals.

Our Commitment to Safety

The safety of our employees, our subcontractors, and other site occupants is of utmost importance to Bay West. We create and implement a Site-Specific Health and Safety Plan (SSHP) or Accident Prevention Plan, depending on the type of client, prior to commencing any field work. These plans include a complete hazard evaluation as well as a detailed plan for ensuring safe work practices and hazard mitigation including:

  • Project description
  • Employee responsibilities
  • Hazard identification (physical, chemical, biological, radiological)
  • Site control
  • Personal protective equipment (PPE)
  • Air/exposure monitoring
  • Decontamination
  • Contingency planning
  • Training and recordkeeping

All Bay West employees are empowered to immediately stop work if unsafe activities are witnessed or if actual site conditions vary from the initial information. All project team members review the safety plans and participate in a kickoff meeting prior to any work commencing. Bay West also ensures all employees and subcontractors on its projects have the proper training required to perform their tasks.
