Preventing Injuries, Saving Lives: Safety Week 2024 Gets Underway

Explore Haskell's unwavering commitment as we kick off Construction Safety Week 2024 by focusing on empowering and encouraging each individual.


Welcome to Construction Safety Week 2024, when Haskell and nearly 300 other construction companies nationwide will sharpen their focus on the commitment and determination needed to ensure the sort of culture necessary to prevent injuries and save lives.

This year’s overarching theme is “Value Every Voice,” and today’s Day 1 emphasis is “Driving Personal Ownership.” Although the construction industry has extensive safety standards, processes, and procedures to keep everyone safe, severe accidents and dangerous events can occur at any time unless each individual remains present and mindful.

“We can have all the checklists, we can have all the policies, but it's very difficult to policy your way to success,” said Mike Woods, Haskell’s Operation President for Construction & Manufacturing, “You truly have to believe it. You have to understand why it's important, and we need to communicate, educate everyone on our job sites and hiring, and ensure that they understand that safety is a mindset that we want them to live by every day.”

Recipient of the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) National Safety Pinnacle Award for three consecutive years, Haskell consistently emphasizes that safety is everyone’s responsibility.

“Every day, there are hundreds and thousands of people working on job sites across the country,” Woods said. “Each individual is making hundreds or thousands of decisions every day, which will determine whether or not they are safe, the job site is safe, and their fellow craft workers are safe.”
