  • October 14, 2020

    Kirby is delighted to be an official sponsor of this year’s CIF Construction Safety Week which takes place from Monday, 19th October to Friday, 23rd October.

    Construction Safety Week is an opportunity to reflect on aspects of safety, health and overall wellbeing and to promote its importance throughout the workforce. It is recommended to review past activities and to learn from successes, failures and near misses. By sharing experiences, we may eliminate avoidable accidents, enhance worker morale and increase productivity.

    Through Leadership and Worker Participation, our aim is to reduce the frequency and severity of ill-health and injury incidents within the workplace.

    The focus for Kirby during the week is:

    Monday: Mental Health, Welfare and Wellbeing in Construction

    Tuesday: Plant and Pedestrian Safety

    Wednesday: Occupational Health in Construction

    Thursday: Working Safely at Height

    Friday: Emergency Preparedness

     

    One of the objectives for the week is to highlight the issues of health and safety in the construction industry and to drive continual improvement.

    Kirby is committed to the health and safety of all those involved in our operations and regularly hosts safety and well-being events.
