About Safety Week

Safety Week 2017 | We are Stronger & Safer Together

Check out the highlights from Safety Week 2016!

We walk on to different work sites with different jobs, trades and tasks. But one thread connects all of us — not just to each other, but to everyone who depends on us at home — safety.

We know that it’s the little things, done well, every day and on every job, that make the difference. Weaving safety through everything we do ties us together, uniting our industry behind a common imperative. So, join us – celebrate safety where you work with an event, continue the conversation on social media and get Safety Week gear to demonstrate your continued commitment to safety.
That’s why more than 40 national and global construction firms comprising The Construction Industry Safety (CISI) group and the Incident and Injury Free CEO (IIF) Forum have joined forces with a single aim: to inspire everyone in the industry to be leaders in safety.

Being safe every day on every job site crosses competitive boundaries. That’s why we have banded together to create and celebrate Safety Week, running this year from Monday, May 1st to Saturday, May 6th.

Mission

The Mission of Safety Week is to collectively raise the awareness of the construction industry’s continuing commitment to eliminating worker injury, and to clearly communicate its dedication to a shared culture of care and concern and the belief that every week must be Safety Week.

History

The Construction Industry Safety Initiative (CISI) includes twelve major contractors who come together twice a year for a two day meeting to discuss only one thing – SAFETY. CISI holds a Safety Summit that includes over 30 major contractors in the United States. This year, the Summit will be held in September at Driskill Hotel in Austin, TX and is sponsored by Fluor and Allan Myers. The goal of CISI is to influence not only those within their group, but others to work safely and elevate safety awareness to a new level in the United States.

IIF Executive Forum

Standing in mutual commitment toward the elimination of worker injury, the Incident & Injury-Free (IIF) Executive Forum is comprised of CEO’s from leading U.S. engineering and construction firms. Since 2009, the IIF Executive Forum has met bi-annually with the objective to both sustain and recreate their present IIF journeys while at the same time creating the possibility of an industry-wide safety transformation.
