The construction industry observed Safety Week 2022 on May 2-6. This year’s theme was, “Remain Connected. Be Supported. Stay Safe.” Throughout the week, discussions occurred across Kiewit staff and craft with the goal of maintaining a strong safety culture through open and honest dialogue. Kiewit highlighted companywide initiatives such as the LSA Guidelines, “Under the Hat” mental health programming and the newly released Operations Start
Card to further engage teams with these tools.
The team at Jack-Stone 10 in Little Rock, Arkansas, celebrated the outstanding achievement of working more than 125,000 man-hours without a recordable safety incident. The team used Safety Week as a great opportunity for on-site trainings on topics such as human equipment interface and crush points. In addition, it was a time to stop, hit the reset button and work on the cleanliness and organization of job trailers, equipment and work areas.
