Safety should always be a priority in every industry, not just during Safety Week. But this week provides a great opportunity for refreshers on safety fundamentals and continued learning about new tools to help improve safety programs. To create a strong safety culture, each team member must understand their responsibility to themselves and their coworkers to Stay Safe.
Day two’s theme for Safety Week is Be Supported. When we see a potential risk or an unsafe action, it’s not always easy to speak up. Having the courage to speak up for safety begins with support. Cultivating an environment where employees feel supported allows them to feel comfortable enough to speak up when it means preventing an incident or injury on the job.
In 2014, Safety Week was created when more than 40 national and global construction firms which comprised the Construction Industry Safety Initiative (CISI) group and the Incident and Injury Free (IIF) CEO Forum joined forces with a single purpose: to inspire everyone in the industry to be leaders in safety. At Everguard, we share that same purpose. Our mission is to use leading-edge technology to keep companies’ most important assets –their people – proactively protected and empowered. With more than 70 national and global construction firms, we recognize Safety Week because we continue to build a stronger, safer industry together.
