We Are Stronger and safer together
Every day, we walk onto construction sites with one goal in mind – get the job done safely. We take great pride in the role we play shaping the communities in which we live, work and play. But even more than that, we feel an unwavering responsibility to one another, our families and friends to make sure we all return home safe every day.
In our industry, safety is not just a series of procedures and protocols, but a unified culture that empowers every person on the job site – from the craft professionals to project and business leaders – to recognize and act on any potential risk. We’re building the awareness of holistic safety, requiring a strong mind, strong body and the right state of mind for every task, on every job, every day. That’s why more than 70 national and global construction firms join forces for Safety Week with a single aim: to provide the vision, insights, resources and equipment standards to inspire everyone in the industry to be leaders in safety.
Safety Week is a show of force, an opportunity for people, companies, and even competitors, to work together and celebrate the incredibly hard work by people in our industry who make safety the foundation of everything they do.
Celebrate safety where you work and demonstrate your continued commitment to building a stronger, safer industry.
We will strengthen our industry’s safety culture and performance by strengthening the resolve of every person who walks onto a job site to be fully focused – mind and body – on safety. We empower every person – from the craft professionals to project and business leaders – to speak up and act on any potential risk in the plans we implement, the actions we take and the state of mind of our co-workers and team members. We advocate for improved safety processes, mental health resources and equipment standards that can reduce the risk of injury and create a safer environment for workers. We are dedicated to elevating the impact our safe choices have on our team members, their families, and the communities in which we live and work. We are united in our commitment to continuously improve our safety culture – not just during Safety Week but every day on every job site.
Together, we are building a stronger, safer industry.
Safety Week was started in 2014, when more than 40 national and global construction firms comprising the Construction Industry Safety Initiative (CISI) group and the Incident and Injury Free (IIF) CEO Forum joined forces with a single aim: to inspire everyone in the industry to be leaders in safety.
In 2016, Safety Week was more formally branded and started to take shape as the fully integrated annual campaign with a growing number of members and sponsors that exists today. While our event is only a week, we impact the lives and livelihoods of employees throughout the year. We continue to focus on our original mission of:
- Celebrating the efforts of workers and organizations</strong across the nation that support safety and recognizing their efforts to make every job site injury free
- Increasing awareness and the actions of craft professionals, project leaders and business leaders in elevating 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
- Providing resources and support to ensure every worker is fully prepared – mind and body – for the work at hand
- Conducting year-round safety awareness activities on-site to support education
