The National Safety Stand-Down Week 2022 to Prevent Falls in Construction runs from May 2-6, 2022 and brings awareness of safety and fall prevention in the construction industry across the country.
Organized by the International Labor Organization in 2003, World Day for Safety and Health is based on the premise that every worker has the right to a safe and healthy working environment.
“We make it our business to be experts in safety to ensure LEAD trade workers are properly educated in safe worksite practice and LEAD clients receive skilled, trained quality workers,” says LEAD General Manager Scott Boddy. “The amount of safety training and skilled experience a trade worker has can make a huge difference in a company’s safety risk.”
Working in a shipyard, or on a vessel, involves welding, steel cutting, machinery maintenance and repair, plumbing, electrical work, rigging, and clean-up of chemicals and fuel – to name a few. Many of these activities can be considered at high risk of injury or illness, therefore, require workers who understand maritime safety protocol.
OSHA mandates that all forklift drivers be trained and certified. In partnership with our clients, LEAD assists with forklift programs that consider and include pedestrian safety as part of a comprehensive forklift safety program.
