BE&K participated company-wide in OSHA’s National Safety Stand-Down the week of May 6-10, 2019, with OSHA Outreach and Education Manager Sharon D. Dumit visiting one of our projects in Greenville, South Carolina. Project teams focused on a different safety awareness and/or training topic each day. Topics included fall protection, personal fall arrest systems, personal protective equipment (PPE) requirements, total hazard analysis (THA) daily risk assessments, ladder safety, site security and active shooter awareness, evacuation awareness, safe driving, fire extinguisher use and inspection, electrical cord inspections, heavy equipment spotters, and much more!
I want to thank everyone for participating in OSHA’s National Safety Stand-Down week. Our teams emphasized the importance of planning our work every day for the safest approach possible. This past week of demonstrations, training and tools were hosted to empower our workers to continue to perform their jobs safely. Project teams brought family photos and comments to post on “Why I Work Safe” boards to remind us how critical it is to ensure we all go home safe at the end of each day. This has been a tremendously successful week and has strengthened our culture of working safe and being incident- and injury-free (IIF).
