Construction Safety Week: 23rd – 27th October 2017

MANY ROLES – ONE VISION – WORKING SAFELY TOGETHER

The management and awareness of safety and health issues has progressed enormously in the construction sector in the past 17 years. Employers and workers have invested time and money to drive improvements, endeavoring to ensure all workers can work safely on construction projects in Ireland.

As an example of this commitment, up to 90,000 workers a year complete the Safe Pass Programme alone – no other industry sector in Ireland can compare with this level of focus.

The construction sector is making a strong economic recovery and the numbers employed are increasing from 98,000 in 2012 to over 140,000 in 2017 – this is expected to rise to nearly 200,000 directly employed in the next 3 – 4 years.

Now is the time to reflect on how safety and health issues are managed and how can we improve on what we do?

Construction Safety Week is an opportunity to take stock of safety procedures and work together to drive home the positive safety message.

Construction Safety Week 2017 – Mission

Our collective mission for Construction Safety Week 2017 is to partner together to;

Reduce accidents on construction sites in Ireland.
Increase awareness of the importance of being committed to safety & health…every day.
Inspiring all of us to share best practices and to work together to strengthen our industry’s safety culture.
Celebrating the safety achievements to date.
