The week of May 7 – 11 was an important one for safety in construction. Across the industry, companies held events as part of the annual Construction Safety Week; at the same time, OSHA – with support from the National Safety Council and dozens of other groups – promoted National Fall Safety Stand-Down Week to encourage employers to address fall protection and safety.

Many LeChase project sites held events to educate employees on falls and other safety topics as well as to celebrate safety and teamwork. Jerrod Garret, LeChase director of Environment, Health and Safety, noted that the week was not only a time for learning but also “a time to step back and recommit to staying alert and making a conscious effort to ensure that everyone makes it home safely to their families every day.”
