National Safety Week for the construction industry will be observed Sept. 14 through 18.
More than 40 national and global construction firms started the Safety Week in 2014 and participation in the week-long observance has steadily grown each year, Carolinas Associated General Contractors (CAGC) says in a statement.
The national Associated General Contractors (AGC) of America “is the primary sponsor for this national event and Carolinas AGC is encouraging all its members to participate,” the statement says.
The Safety Week mission is to:
- Thank workers for supporting safety and recognizing their efforts to be injury free;
- Increase 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; and
- Conducting on-site safety awareness activities to support education,
