4 TURNER INDUSTRIES

In 2022, we saw the world change at an enormous pace. As the COVID-19 pandemic started to subside, our industry and the global economy began to gain momentum. Even with so much happening around us, Turner Industries showed its strength and stability as a company, maintaining the foundation that the late Bert Turner put in place more than 60 years ago.

This report illustrates the many examples of our corporate and social responsibility efforts from last year. Turner employees continue to demonstrate a level of excellence in everything they do, and that level of excellence can be seen throughout this report.

• Saf ety — First and foremost, 2022 was Turner Industries’ safest year on record. Our employees deserve all the credit for this accomplishment, having worked more than 40 million hours. We will continue to design safety programs and initiatives that ensure our employees make it home safely at the end of each day. This isn’t just a priority for us—it’s the foundation of the company’s success.

• Workforce Development — Attracting and retaining a quality workforce requires our workforce development efforts to be ongoing and far reaching. Our workforce development team travels across the country to help build the next generation of industry leaders. Internally, we’re implementing workforce development programs that allow our employees to improve their skills and advance their careers, while also providing safe and efficient solutions to our clients.

• Sustainability — As clients continue to meet the growing energy demands of today’s world, they’re also working toward lowering their carbon footprint and implementing sustainability initiatives. In addition to supporting our clients’ sustainability efforts, Turner is carrying out smart solutions of our own. These solutions will benefit our clients and the communities we work in, and create a more sustainable future.

• Community Investment — We want to be a responsible member of the communities where our employees live and work and where our clients operate. Being a good neighbor and citizen means committing time and resources to help those in need, volunteering with nonprofit and other local organizations, and providing stable, well-paying jobs to the people in our communities.

Thanks to Turner’s amazing employees for all their hard work in 2022. I can’t wait to see all that we accomplish in 2023.

A LETTER FROM OUR CEO
2021 CORPORATE RESPONSIBILITY REPORT 5

A young engineer named Bert Turner buys Nichols Construction Company out of bankruptcy. The company specializes in industrial construction, heavy equipment, hauling, rigging and equipment rental. It doesn’t take Turner long to realize that the industrial construction industry is a series of peaks and valleys. So, he begins to take steps to ensure a steady stream of revenue, embarking on industrial contract maintenance and other services which fulfill the needs of his clients. In 1968, he hires Roland Toups, who currently serves as executive chairman.

70 ’s 90 ’s 10 ’s

Mr. Turner begins to acquire companies and add additional services like scaffolding, as well as continually expanding the equipment fleet and buying bigger cranes. These moves provide the company with opportunities to manage and control most of the elements that make up construction, maintenance, and turnaround work.

The Turner group enters the fabrication business, forming International Piping Systems, and introduces a pipe bending process that revolutionizes the pipe fabrication business in the United States. The company participates in many of the large industrial construction projects being built in the Gulf South at the time.

Industrial specialty services, such as NDE and inspection services, specialized welding, and environmental remediation are added to fill client needs as they arise. Proprietary programs are developed internally to better track and manage work.

The early companies are consolidated into one entity—Turner Industries Group—with four main business lines: Construction; Maintenance and Turnarounds; Pipe and Module Fabrication; and Equipment and Specialty Services. Five fabrication facilities located across the Gulf South make Turner one of the leading pipe fabricators in the United States.

A focus at Turner this decade is digitizing the wealth of data generated by our employees and at our clients’ jobsites to make data-driven decisions that reduce costs, save time and improve safety metrics. Our everevolving DECIDE WITH DATA® software and services portfolio offers a digital “toolbox” that can solve critical client productivity, reliability, and safety issues. The company begins building ‘one-stop’ hiring and training facilities and opens new regional offices in Geismar and Hahnville, Louisiana; Pensacola, Florida; and Freeport, Texas.

NEW OPPORTUNITIES IN ALTERNATIVE AND EMERGING ENERGY SECTORS

Our newly formed Turner Industries Energy Services allows our portfolio of companies to pursue opportunities in the alternative and emerging energy sectors. We continue to successfully complete renewable projects, and we will continue to support the global transition to a lower-carbon energy future.

NEW TECHNOLOGY

New Turner Tablet Applications are reducing the burden of administrative work by digitizing and automating paper-based forms and tasks. We have developed—or are in the process of developing— new tablet applications that are helping to increase productivity, adaptability, collaboration, and efficiency at jobsites across the country. Whether it’s a new work package or estimation tool, or applications that capture ticketed work or real-time daily resources onsite, Turner is setting the pace for the future of work in our industry.

Turner Industries has also introduced on-site safety kiosks, designed to ensure that supervisors and crew members always have access to the most recent safety information, checklists, and procedures.

Lavaca, Texas team has moved to a new location because a bigger, more accommodating space was needed.

NEW OPERATIONS IN THE GULF OF MEXICO

Our New Iberia, Louisiana facility is the cornerstone of Turner’s Gulf of Mexico Operations. This site’s direct access to deep water and major interstates means modules can be efficiently shipped across the country and offshore. By being able to fabricate, assemble, transport, and install, Turner offers a “ONE Solution” for our clients’ modular fabrication projects.

2020 – PRESENT

Safety

2022 was a record-breaking year for Turner Industries. Employees at over 400 jobsites across the country worked more than 40 million hours at an all-time low TRIR of 0.20.

This achievement would not be possible without the total commitment and continuous efforts of our employees at each and every jobsite.

Award-Winning Safety Takes Award-Winning People

“What an amazing year it was in 2022! Despite tough economic conditions and a country and industry still recovering from the challenges of a global pandemic, Turner Industries employees maintained a strong work ethic and safety focus, posting the best overall safety performance in the company’s history.

This level of success is only possible due to the diligence and commitment of each employee. Our employees are truly our most valuable asset, and they continue to propel our company to exceptional levels of success in all we do. Because of their commitment, we were able to build on our safety processes and successes in past years by enhancing key program elements such as Stop Work Authority and hands-free work applications, along with introducing the next level of our Human Performance Initiative. These enhancements further strengthened our overall program and kept us moving forward in safety innovation and protection processes for all employees.

The success we’ve been able to achieve in recent years can only be realized with a strong value-based safety approach and the engagement and contributions of each Turner team member. These elements, along with innovative safety practices, continued education and instruction, and a high level of interaction at all levels of the company, will continue to yield outstanding results and drive us toward the ultimate achievement of Zero Incident Performance in all we do.”

Louder Than the Noise 2022 Safety Initiatives

with distractions both inside and outside the gates. Our Human Performance Initiative seeks to understand why mistakes occur instead of how mistakes occur.

With a focus on the work to be performed, the worker performing that work, and the environmental factors that affect safe execution, we can further predict and enhance end-level results for the best overall performance. Coupled with a vibrant and innovative safety process and a high level of engagement and interaction by our workforce, our Human Performance Initiative helps to ensure industry-leading performance that drives us toward the ultimate achievement of Zero Incident Performance.

Stop Work Authority

The Stop Work Authority program is built upon three pillars of accountability and communication:

CARE – The willingness to confront an issue.

CONCERN – The willingness to speak up.

COURAGE – The trust that your message will be taken seriously.

10 TURNER INDUSTRIES
At Turner Industries, the focus on safety must be louder than the noise—both the outside noise of our work environment and the inside noise of our thoughts and feelings.

‘I’ve Got Your 6’

“I’ve Got Your 6” is also an extension of our Stop Work Authority program. This stresses the importance of watching out for your coworkers during work activities, encouraging workers to speak up when they notice something that may affect the safety of a coworker or crew, and how to receive that message from a coworker.

Stop the Drop

Dropped objects have the potential to cause equipment damage, maim and kill. Even a small object, when dropped from a considerable height, can cause major injury. Our worksites are utilizing and continually evaluating measures to prevent falling/dropped objects. These efforts include combinations of tool tethers, installed mesh around work areas when working at heights, and covered grating/pipe openings to prevent dropped objects. Proper job planning, auditing, incident sharing, and craft education have been effective in reducing these types of incidents.

Hand Safety

Safety Kiosks

In 2022, Turner Industries introduced onsite safety kiosks. The kiosks are designed to ensure that supervisors and crew members always have access to the most recent safety information, checklists, and procedures. The kiosks were piloted at select locations with the goal of expanding to many other jobsites.

The ability to use our hands is a critical component of navigating everyday life. Because we use our hands for virtually every task we encounter, hand injuries continue to be the most common type of injury in heavy industry. To stop hand injuries, it is important to understand what types of hand injuries are most common and know how to avoid these situations.

MOST COMMON HAND INJURIES AND HOW TO AVOID THEM:

Being Caught Between Two Objects

Keep hands and fingers out of the line of fire and away from pinch points. Use hands-free tools whenever possible.

Working with Machinery/Equipment

Isolate the energy source. Implement a Lock, Tag & Verify procedure.

Exposure to Chemicals or Heat

Use proper hand protection. Protective gloves should be selected based on the hazards involved.

Puncture Wounds

Use proper tools and/or hand protection for the specific task.

TEAM Turner members also serve on school boards, health organization boards, and nonprofit organization boards—across the Gulf South—all with the goal of improving the lives of the members in their communities.

EQUIPMENT DIVISION ADMINISTRATION BUILDING

Our Port Lavaca, Texas team has also moved to a new location, and Turner is continuing to grow and invest in the Texas Gulf Coast. As our late founder, Bert Turner, used to say, “A company can’t thrive if the community around it is falling apart.”
