Safety Starts with Each of Us: Flatiron Recognizes Construction Safety Week 2023
Construction Safety Week is an annual campaign designed to educate and inspire everyone in the industry to be leaders in safety. At Flatiron, we recognize the inherent risks of the construction industry – that’s one of the many reasons why safety is at the core of everything we do.
Throughout this week, team leaders led discussions focused on many aspects that can affect safety on the job – from planning the work, hazard identification and managing change, to significant injury management, and finally, the intersection between inclusion and belonging, mental health and safety on the job. Flatiron’s project safety teams are also carried out several specialized hands-on trainings focused on high risk areas and incident reduction.
“When it comes to safety, our goal is continuous improvement, and we can accomplish this by continually developing our strong safety culture. Safety starts with each of us.” – Ken Tanner, vice president of operations, Canada division
While Construction Safety Week may be only one week, our employees’ safety is our priority every day of the year.
