A busy month for Safety department included a focus on mental health and free resources available to you

May was a busy month for the Safety Department!

During the week of May 6-10, the Safety Department held Stand-Downs at company jobsites to promote OSHA’s National Safety Stand-Down to Prevent Falls in Construction. Fatalities caused by falls from elevation continue to be a leading cause of death for construction employees, accounting for 395 of the 1069 construction fatalities recorded in 2022 (BLS data).

The month of May was also Mental Health Awareness Month. The week of May 13-17, the Safety Department was promoting Mental Health Awareness while visiting job sites and engaging employees in the field. The Safety Department and Management would like to remind all company employees of our EAP (Employee Assistance Program) that has many resources available to you at no cost if you or a family member are struggling with mental health.
