April 25, 2018
Brasfield & Gorrie today announced that the company is joining with other construction industry stakeholders in sponsoring Safety Week 2018, an industry-wide initiative that aims to raise awareness of safety in construction.
During the week of May 7-11, 2018, the company will observe Safety Week with events and activities at its offices and jobsites. Centered around the theme, “Teamwork Makes Safety Work,” Brasfield & Gorrie’s efforts seek to increase employee engagement in safety.
The company’s Safety Week initiatives include a fundraising component to benefit Kids’ Chance, a nonprofit organization that provides scholarships to children who have been affected by workplace injuries. To support Kids’ Chance, Brasfield & Gorrie offered special edition Safety Week t-shirts benefiting the nonprofit and will host fundraising events during Safety Week.
“As a national sponsor of Safety Week 2018, we’re joining construction industry stakeholders across the nation to help promote the power of safe choices and create a safer, stronger industry,” said Brasfield & Gorrie Vice President and Corporate Safety Director Troy Ogden. “By including Kids’ Chance in our Safety Week efforts, we are advancing the educational dreams of those impacted by workplace injuries and spotlighting the personal nature of safety.”
During Safety Week 2018, Brasfield & Gorrie employees will participate in a variety of activities that elevate worker safety and health. Many of Brasfield & Gorrie’s more than 200 active jobsites will hold training sessions, such as safety stand-downs, and events designed to foster safety conversations, such as team safety walks and safety lunches. The company’s regional offices will also participate in Safety Week activities, including emergency action plan drills, CPR training, and other seminars.
