Dec 2-6 is Older Driver Safety Awareness Week. Research shows that older drivers are more likely – than their younger counterparts – to adopt safe behaviors such as wearing a seat belt and complying with speed limits.
However, those age 55 and older have twice the risk of dying in a work-related crash than younger workers do. One possible reason is that older persons are more likely to be injured if they are in a crash, and more likely to die if they are injured.
Are you prepared to fall back this weekend? The seasonal time change creates a higher risk for injuries at work.
Employers and staff should be aware of the possible effects on safety caused by the loss of sleep brought on by the daylight saving time changes.
National Construction Appreciation Week is the third week in September and recognizes the dedicated, hardworking men and women in the industry who are instrumental in the development of our infrastructure and facilities.
Tell those you know in the industry you appreciate their work! And post your construction photos on social media using #ThanksForBuilding and #ConstructionAppreciationWeek
National Construction Safety Week is an emphasis of safe work practices by national and global construction firms. This event takes place each spring to remind construction workers and supervisors how important workplace safety is every week of every year.
Safety on a construction site goes far beyond reducing injuries. It’s about coming together to protect one another, and making sure everyone gets home safely every night.
