FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

AUSTIN, TEXAS, March 31 2015—JMJ Associates is proud to support the second annual Construction Industry ‘Safety Week’ 2015, to be held from May 3 to May 9 2015.

The Safety Week effort, initiated by CEOs and leaders from over forty national and global construction firms representing the Construction Industry Safety Initiative (CISI) group and the Incident and Injury-Free™ (IIF™) CEO Forum, is aimed to inspire the commitment to safety leadership across the construction industry. Over the course of the week, thousands of people around the world will engage in activities related to safety in the workplace. JMJ Associates is proud and honored to support them and to be part of this journey to lead the industry toward a way of working in which no one is injured.

Following the great success of the first Safety Week in 2014, this year’s effort is intended to encourage large and small contractors across the world to join in elevating and celebrating safety with the goal of eliminating worker injury in an industry where incidents continue to occur. While strides are being made to improve safety in the world of construction, the industry still experienced approximately 800 fatal work injuries in 2013—the highest number of fatal work injuries of any other industry sector, according to the most recent Bureau of Labor Statistics data.

“At JMJ, our deepest commitment is to the safety, health and well-being of every single person on every single worksite around the world,” says Camille Ford, Senior JMJ Consultant. “This Safety Week initiative is an inspiring action on the part of U.S. Construction Industry leaders to ensure this commitment to safety becomes a reality inside the industry. We are proud to stand in partnership with this effort, furthering the message that a Construction Industry where no one is hurt is not only a possibility, but a necessity.”

To support the Safety Week initiative, a Safety Week website is available to assist with the sharing of information and ideas promoting safety throughout the construction industry. The website has step-by-step planning tips for firms to host their own safety week events, as well as best practices on how to strengthen their safety culture.
