This week, at construction offices and job sites all across the country, the A/E/C community is taking time to proactively communicate the importance of safety. The solidarity and unified message communicated by those participating in Safety Week sets a powerful example and provides a platform for reminding the industry of its responsibility to promote safety in the workplace.
At Cannistraro, the “Plan-Work-Live Safe” ethos is at work every day, yet Safety Week provides a great opportunity to reinforce our safety values, broadcast new programs and policies, and re-commit ourselves to the reasons “why we work safe.” This year, as part of Safety Week 2015, Cannistraro is launching its own custom-built Safety App to help personnel better manage safety initiatives in the field. Designed specifically for use on the iPad, Foremen and Project Managers will have instant access to all Toolbox Talks, Safety Communications, Job Hazard Analysis, Pre-task Planning and other forms utilized as part of the company’s Environmental Health and Safety Programs. Additionally, employees across Greater Boston will participate in Safety Week activities ranging from safety awareness luncheons to safety breaks, while company leaders will continue their regular site visits and safety walks that were instituted during Safety Week last year.
Cannistraro is proud of the positive safety culture that has developed since Safety Week 2014, and sees the visible results in its decreased injury rates and strong safety ratings (e.g. ISNet World, ConstructSecure and an Experienced Modification Rate). Though the company is eager to join its clients in collaborative Safety Week programs, and launch some of its own, the underlying message of the week will continue to be reinforced throughout the year with new safety training opportunities, ongoing communication and continuous improvement.
