On Monday, BL Harbert International announced the official kick-off of the 2021 Construction Safety Week activities designed to raise awareness about our ongoing commitment to staying safe and focused on the job.
More than 65 construction firms across the U.S. and Canada have joined forces for the annual Safety Week, a construction industry-wide education and awareness event. Safety Week 2021 will be held May 3-7. This year’s theme is “Holistic Safety – Be Present. Be Focused. Be Safe.”
“Construction is both physically and mentally demanding. As a leader in the industry, we have a responsibility to acknowledge the challenges our workers face and create an environment where safety is a priority,” said Billy Harbert, BLHI Chairman and CEO. “This week is a chance to once again renew our commitment — from leadership to our team members in the field — to staying safe and focused on the job.”
“For our 8,000+ employees across the globe, Safety Week is a reminder that we all share a responsibility to one another, and our families, to do everything possible to ensure everyone goes home safely each and every day,” added Frank Wampol, BLHI Vice President, Safety and Health. “Together, we can continue to keep BL Harbert team members safe both on and off the jobsite.”
