VINCI International Safety Week 2019

Vinci International Safety Week 2019

or How We Celebrated Safety with Thousands of Our Closest Friends

From October 5th - 11th, VINCI construction and hundreds of subsidiaries from around the world celebrated their annual International Safety Week. This year's theme was "Just Say Stop" - encouraging any and every employee to speak up when they see something unsafe.

We focus on Safety throughout the year, but Safety Week is a great time to really emphasize some of the broader themes that we talk about regularly - like speaking up and stopping work. The importance of feeling empowered to speak out can't be overstated - it's everyone's right and we encourage and expect all of our employees to stop work when they see something unsafe."
Seth Pearlman, President & CEO, Menard Group USA

Our teams organized ToolBox Talks, various site activities and training and an all-company stand down to go over the the themes of the week.

Our Senior Leaders also visited our sites and shops across the country to participate with the field crews and to talk about topics like productive and safe workflow, rig safety, hand safety and hazard communication. We had 131 total participants, including our permanent and temporary employees.

Fire extinguisher training was also part of the week's activities

In good news, early survey results from the week showed that our employees feel very empowered to speak up and stop work! It was a successful - and safe - week!
