ANNOUNCEMENT FROM SAFETY WEEK CHAIR SCOTT CASSELS AND CO-CHAIR MIKE MCKELVY

July 21, 2020

Safety Week Sponsors:

We’re looking forward to our rescheduled Construction Safety Week, Sept. 14-18, 2020.

We want to provide companies with guidance and resources to help them easily plan a safe and effective Construction Safety Week. Please see below for additional information.

1. In addition to contractors revisiting their own safety programs during Construction Safety Week, for the first time we are also recommending a topic for each day of Construction Safety Week to help guide conversations. The attached Construction Safety Week Daily Topics document includes descriptions of each topic and recommendations for discussions.

2. As we continue to grapple with the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s important that we all prioritize planning safe activities for the week. The attached Safely Planning for Construction Safety Week document outlines ideas and recommendations.

3. By early August, we will provide additional resources, including the toolbox talks and videos for each topic mentioned above, as well as additional job site banners, social media templates and at-home activities to engage our families in conversations about safety. These will all be made available on our website, ConstructionSafetyWeek.com on the Plan for Safety Week page.

Our sponsors are important partners and supporters of contractors and the entire construction industry. Your continued support of Construction Safety Week is greatly appreciated. We look forward to another successful Construction Safety Week and thank you for your commitment to be Built on Safety.

Thank you,

Scott Cassels

Construction Safety Week Members, Sponsors and Advocates,

Please mark your calendars on Sept. 14-18, 2020 for our rescheduled dates for Construction Safety Week.

We are excited to get Construction Safety Week rescheduled and believe now more than ever it’s important to recommit to our safety fundamentals that have allowed our industry to be Built on Safety.

As we finish developing a revised Safety Week 2020 plan, it will certainly be different than past years to allow for proper COVID-19 protocols. Although we may need to alter our safety meetings and recognition events, we will still find and promote effective ways to meet and recommit to sending every person home safely from our job sites each day. Our focus will be on our theme — Built on Safety — and our foundational tools, education and processes to ensure all the men and women who work in our industry are safe.

In the coming weeks, we will share new recommendations and resources with you to outline ways we can all plan for Construction Safety Week on Sept. 14-18, 2020. This will include a recommended topic for each day along with ideas for communicating and discussing each topic.

We look forward to another successful Construction Safety Week. Thank you for your continued support.

Stay safe,

Scott Cassels
