SafeBuild Alliance is coordianting this breakfast with Safety Week 2015. According to the Safety Week 25 website every year, more than 80,000 workers suffer an injury on construction job sites across the U.S. Any one incident is one too many. Life is too precious to not make safety the number one focus in the U.S. construction industry. That's why over 40 national and global construction firms comprising The Construction Industry Safety (CISI) group and the Incident and Injury Free CEO (IIF) Forum have joined forces with a single aim: to inspire everyone in the industry to be leaders in safety.
From this aim, Safety Week is now in its second year. On the Safety Week 2015 website, information includes:
- What is Safety Week?
- Why Safety Week?
- Who We Are
- How to Conduct a Saferty Week
- Safety Week Resources
Personnel can also participate on the Safety Week 2015 LinkedIn Group and join the discussion.
