The Sammon Group are proud to be among the many participants in this year’s CIF Construction Safety Week, running from October 23rd to 27th next.
During this week Construction companies, nationwide will work on the further promotion of health and safe work practices within their organisations. The initiative aims to achieve the following:
- reduce accidents on construction sites in Ireland
- increase awareness of the importance of being committed to safety & health …every day.
- inspiring all of us to share best practices and to work together to strengthen our industry’s safety culture
- celebrating the safety achievements to date
We are delighted to be taking part in this week-long focus on Health & Safety and are fortunate to have several professionals in fields such as Mental Health, Occupational Health, etc available to present to our staff members. During the week, each of our sites will take part in toolbox talks, safety quiz’s, product demo’s etc and we are also looking forward to several school visits to highlight safety around construction sites within our community.
While safety is a constant focus on our sites with our own EHS team working tirelessly to implement safe practices and to ensure a safe work environment for all, it is very encouraging to see so much national support for such an important subject matter. Wishing everyone a safe and successful Construction Safety Week 2017!
