Vice President of Environmental, Health
"I'm thrilled to be a central part of a dedicated team of construction professionals that embraces employee protection and zero incidents. I believe LeChase has the mind-set and the drive to become a world-class leader in safety and innovation."
A.B. Robinson joined LeChase in 2011 as vice president of environmental, health and safety. Prior to his role with the firm, A.B.’s proven safety approaches have included creating, revamping and managing environmental, health and safety development programs for several Fortune 500 companies, including Fluor Corporation and Skanska. He drove injury and illness rates to record lows, saving these corporations millions of dollars in compensation costs through his Zero Incidents model, which now serves as a model in the engineering and construction industry. A.B.'s safety philosophy raises the bar on performance, recognition and expectations while building the mind-set that zero incidents is an attainable goal. These programs are focused on simplicity and protecting LeChase’s most valued asset—its people. He has developed many key metrics for leading and lagging indicators measuring the results of the company’s various initiatives and instituted a comprehensive safety program that focuses on eliminating serious injury and death. The LeChase Life Saving Commitments Program—a component of LeChase’s Zero Incidents initiative—covers topics such as stored energy, fall protection, cranes and rigging, confined spaces, excavation, mobile equipment, caught-in/struck-by hazards and drug and alcohol awareness.
A.B.'s portfolio has spanned globally and across industry lines to include industrial, manufacturing, mining, commercial, oil and gas, power, pharmaceutical, automotive, paper, chemical and other related markets in as many as 50 countries.
A.B. continues to be instrumental in facilitating recognition from the safety industry, helping LeChase win awards from the Business Roundtable, The Associated General Contractors of America (AGC), Associated Builders and Contractors, Europe's Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA), the American Society of Safety Engineers and the National Safety Council, of which he is a member. He is also a past officer and board member for the National Construction Safety Executives and the American Society of Safety Engineers.
He earned a B.A. degree in Political Science from Furman University and completed the Executive International Business Program at Thunderbird School of Global Management.
A.B. is a strong proponent of LeChase’s culture and leads the organization in environmental, health and safety efforts to ensure that everyone works safely in what is an inherently dangerous industry.
