Safety Week 2017

Safety Week 2017

The goal of Safety Week is to collectively raise the awareness of the construction industry’s continuing commitment to eliminating worker injury and to clearly communicate a shared culture of care and concern.

Workplace safety

Every year, more than 80,000 workers suffer an injury on construction job sites across the United States. Any one incident is one too many. Zurich is committed to working with you to help reduce worker injuries and improve safety.

Zurich is a proud sponsor of Safety Week 2017 – an industry initiative we support along with 40 national and global construction firms comprising the Construction Industry Safety Initiative (CISI) group and the Incident and Injury-Free CEO Forum (IFF).

If you would like to learn more about how Zurich can help you build safety practices into your workplace, contact Eric Lambert or your Risk Engineer.
