Granite’s employees participated in awareness and educational activities focused on building a safer company in recognition of Safety Week, which runs until 10 May.
The company is also asking every employee to commit to making safer choices both at work and at home.
James H. Roberts, Granite president and CEO, says: “Each of us faces hundreds of choices a day that affect the safety of each other and ourselves. Safety is a Core Value at Granite, and this week we recommit to making safe choices that create a positive difference at home and at work. The protection of our employees, the public and the environment is at the core of everything we do. It is our goal to empower each employee to make safe choices all day, every day.”
Safety Week started in 2014, when more than 40 firms comprised the Construction Industry Safety Initiative (CISI) group and the Incident and Injury Free CEO Forum set out to inspire everyone in the industry to be leaders in safety. Granite is one of the 12 founding members of CISI.
