“Safety is our way of life.” This statement holds true not only during National Safety Month but every day at McCrossin Foundations. National Safety Month is observed in June, and according to the National Safety Council’s website, the mission of this month is to “focus on reducing leading causes of injury and death at work, on the road and in our homes and communities.”
In observance of Safety Month, we held safety stand-down meetings each week with crews at every job site. Project and safety managers reviewed various topics, including hazard recognition, slips/trips/falls, crush points, and impairment.
Throughout the year, weekly toolbox talks are used to discuss topics that relate to our industry and our day-to-day work as a way to continuously learn and keep safety top-of-mind.
