Join AGC For Construction Safety Week - September 14 – 18, 2020

AGC of America is a lead sponsor for Construction Safety Week, which started back in 2014 to inspire everyone in the industry to be leaders in safety. The annual campaign continues to focus on the original mission of:

  • Thanking workers for supporting safety and recognizing their efforts to be injury free

  • Increasing awareness of the importance of being committed to safety, every day

  • Encouraging everyone to share best practices and to work together to strengthen the industry’s safety culture

  • Conducting on-site safety awareness activities to support education

This year’s Construction Safety Week theme is Built on Safety and below are recommended topics for discussion each day. Remember to follow federal, state and local guidelines to safely plan your Construction Safety Week activities during the COVID-19 pandemic.

DAILY TOPICS

 

Monday, September 14 - Built on Safety 

Our industry is Built on Safety. The projects we proudly construct and design, the teams we work alongside and the companies we work for are all built on safety.

From the moment we step onto a job site, safety is the foundation, the cornerstone of everything we do. We provide and use the tools and training needed to work incident free. We empower every person on every job site to make smart, measured and safe decisions. We speak up when we see something unsafe. We make a personal commitment to each other. These are the expectations when we are built on safety.

Safety is not a rule, it’s a value and belief we all share. When we make safe choices, lives are protected. We are built on safety because our families at home and at work depend on it.

It’s up to each of us to never let our guard down, to understand the impact of our actions, and to make certain that every decision, every operation, and every project is built on safety.

Tuesday, September 15 – Focus on the Fundamentals

In every company, there are core safety programs that drive safety culture. These programs define what’s most important and where we place our focus in terms of safety. Focus on the processes and procedures that are in place on your job sites to ensure everyone goes home safely at the end of the day.

Thursday, September 17 – Mental Health Awareness

In construction, we’re tough. But that doesn’t mean we’re not susceptible to struggles with our mental health. Our jobs demand a lot of us, and that combined with financial, family and societal stress can take a toll.

Friday, September 18 – Thank You, Construction Workers

Our industry builds the infrastructure that communities depend on. We safely build the projects that provide clean water, reliable power, safe transportation, accessible health care and so much more. It is time to celebrate all that our industry and workers have done for the communities where we live and work.
