US Industry Safety Week: how are you encouraging onsite safety?

Posted by James Hawley, Executive Vice President, Veredus | Hays on Thursday, May 7, 2015

Construction Safety WeekAccording to Safety Week, every year, more than 80,000 workers suffer an injury on construction job sites in the US.

This year, over 40 US and global construction companies have come together to encourage improved safety practiced as part of day to day culture in the industry.

Among the organizations leading the initiative are the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC), who’s STEP safety training programs have been supporting the industry since 1989. Throughout safety week, all ABC members will receive daily safety training communications on different aspects of safety.

The Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) are running a series of training events across the country to prevent fatalities from falls on sites.

Throughout the week, The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) is holding a full schedule of community and social activities to encourage an overall culture of safety in construction.
