A Safety Week Message from Chubb Construction Risk Engineering

Safety is a broad, multidimensional term that should encompass more than just personal protective equipment (PPE). It should address proactive design and planning, worker orientation and training, adequate personal protective equipment and fall protection systems, and it must include commitment from both management and workers.

A Safety Week Message from Your Partners at Chubb Construction Risk Engineering

 

The Construction Industry has and continues to play a significant role in making the U.S. a leader in the industrial world. This would not be possible if not for the dedicated and talented men and women working in this proud and storied industry.

 

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics 2016 Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries report, construction worker fatalities increased 6% from 2015 to 2016 — recording 991 worker deaths — the highest number of any industry in our country. Construction deaths account for 22% of all worker fatalities in the private sector, meaning more than 1 in 5 workplace fatalities occurring in the U.S. are happening in the construction industry.

 

Safety week is the construction industry’s forum to reiterate the value and importance we place on our workers and to reaffirm our commitment in enhancing the safety culture on our construction projects. In order for this industry to improve upon these unacceptable statistics, it requires a collaborative effort by management and labor to elevate the approach on safety for all construction projects.

 

Management has the responsibility to ensure workers have a safe work environment including but not limited to planning, equipment and training. Labor has the responsibility to adhere to and execute those safeguards. It’s a Team Effort.

 

Chubb is proud to partner with the construction industry to help mitigate accidents, enhance the safety culture on projects, and deliver tailored solutions.

For safety week, we would like to share a poem about Health and Safety written by Don Merrell titled “I Chose to Look the Other Way.”

We hope you read and share this poem during safety week on all of your projects with the special men and women that make the construction industry one of the best industries in this great nation.
