We will strengthen our industry’s safe culture and performance by sharing best practices, tools and resources. We are focused on the impact our safe choices have on our team members, their families, and the communities in which we live and work. We are united in our commitment to continuously improve our safety culture and send each employee home safe each day. Together, we are building a stronger, safer industry.
Every day when we walk onto a job site, we all have to know what’s on the line. The work. Our reputations. A paycheck.
But most importantly, what’s really on the line are the lives and livelihood of every person on the job site. Out here, the risks are real. Our work, our focus and the choices we make have real consequences for everyone around us. These are the people who stand beside us. People we consider our friends, our second family.
That’s why we will do everything in our power to ensure that every one of us is safe. When we enter this industry, we join a unique community, a family of sorts, where everyone knows – no questions asked – that we always have each other’s back. This is the commitment we make, based on the respect we have for each other and the risks associated with the work we do. Safety is the foundation that holds us together. It’s not something we can opt in or out of. It is a promise, to ourselves, our co-workers and the families who rely and count on us.
Safety Week is our opportunity to recognize the promise we made when we accepted this job, and the immense responsibility that comes with it. To make absolutely certain we do whatever it takes to send everyone home safely every day.
