Construction Safety Week

Construction Safety Week

Falls are preventable. In an effort to stop fall fatalities and injuries, take part in Safety Week during the week of May 6-10, 2019.

Conduct a Safety Talk

Safety Week is a voluntary event to talk to employees about safety; any workplace can hold a safety talk or stand-down! Companies can participate by stopping work and providing a toolbox talk or another safety activity that focuses on fall hazards or reinforces the importance of fall prevention. Visit Construction Safety Week for more information on planning Safety Week Activities.
