LeChase sites focus on safety every day. Each year, Construction Safety Week provides an additional opportunity to share new perspectives and review fundamentals – from recognizing hazards and using proper PPE, to reinforcing procedures and skills needed to keep everyone safe.

This year’s Construction Safety Week materials are also serving to raise awareness of safety and mental health issues through daily toolbox topics. These generated good discussions on jobsites, and reinforced that safety is truly a team effort. As LeChase Associate Corporate Director of Environmental, Health and Safety David Batrony noted: “If these toolbox talks change or open up conversation in one crew, then we had a successful week!”
