WALTHAM, MA- Delphi Construction President Keith Shaw announced the promotion of John Van Zetta to Director of Safety. The New York native has been with the company since 2018 and served as Safety Manager prior to receiving this promotion. Shaw said the move further reinforces Delphi’s commitment to prioritizing Safety throughout the organization.
“There is a mantra in construction that says Safety is everyone’s responsibility, but we also understand how crucial it is to have a single driving force behind the practices, policies and procedures that perpetuate a strong safety culture. John is singular in his focus on equipping, empowering, and holding accountable not only our staff, but our network of preferred subcontractors as well, to ensure that Safety remains a defining characteristic of our company,” Shaw said.
As Director, Van Zetta will continue to institutionalize the high standards of Safety he established as Safety Manager.
“My overarching goal is to deputize our entire staff and to create a culture where everyone thinks about safety every bit as much as I do. At the core is a rigorous schedule of specialized safety training, daily oversight, an emphasis on personal accountability and the consistent reinforcement of standards. We will continue to build on this foundation moving forward.” Van Zetta said.
Prior to joining the Delphi team, Van Zetta was Director of Environmental, Safety, and Compliance for a New York based heavy civil construction firm. He holds a BS in Environmental Science from Western New England University and an MBA from Mount Saint Mary College. Van Zetta is an Authorized OSHA Outreach Trainer and a National Safety Council First Aid and CPR Instructor.
