The Construction Industry Federation launched its annual construction safety week campaign on Monday and called on all construction companies to set aside time this week to re-emphasise the importance of safety to their employees with a view to further reducing workplace accidents.

The week will commence on September 12th and will see a series of week-long initiatives run across construction sites and offices nationally.

The aim is to help construction companies establish a safety mindset amongst their employees. This will ultimately reduce workplace accidents and maximise the safety and well-being of their employees.

Director General of CIF, Tom Parlon said events like safety week are absolutely critical in reminding employees to think ‘safety’ as this is proven to have a significant impact in reducing accidents
