This week, HITT team members and our subcontractor partners held more than 100 stand downs and demonstrations on jobsites across the country in recognition of Safety Week 2019. At HITT, we are committed to safety excellence, not only this week, but every day.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, nearly 1,000 construction workers died on construction projects in 2017. These numbers are alarming and reflect the need for continued focus on improving safety across our industry. As leaders in the construction community, we accept our responsibility to ensure everyone who comes in contact with our work returns home safely.
Through increased education, open communication, and collaboration with our clients, partners, and subcontractors, we can elevate our safety mindset and eliminate accidents and construction-related fatalities nationwide. Join us as we renew our pledge to elevating safety on every construction site, across the country.
