Highlights from Safety Week 2013

Across the country this week, Skanska USA teams came together to emphasize and strengthen our Injury-Free Environment® focus. This year’s Safety Week was highlighted by the creation of InjuryFreeEnvironment.com, a website in which Skanska teams and our project partners can learn and share safety best practices all year. Below are some of the activity highlights from Safety Week 2013!

At the Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children expansion in Wilmington, Del., a patient was invited to participate in Stretch and Flex from his hospital balcony.

What do ballerinas and construction workers have in common? The Annex Dance Company hosted Stretch and Flex at the Gaillard Center Renovation in Charleston, S.C.!

Team members at the University of Delaware answer the question: “What does working safe mean to you?”

Our commitment to safety starts at the top! Here executives visit the site at our Second Avenue Subway 86th Street Station project in New York City.

Sometimes it takes a live demonstration to really hammer the point home. Here, a colleague was hoisted up to show the proper use of a harness at the Alston & Bird LLP renovation in Atlanta.

Workers at the Palo Alto Medical Foundation’s new San Carlos Center take the Skanska safety pledge.

To work safe you need healthy bodies! Two laborers (who happen to be brothers) get their knots worked out by Professional Massage Therapists at 32 Quincy street jobsite in Cambridge, Mass.

Team members at Notre Dame’s iconic Morris Inn share some thoughts on achieving an Injury-Free Environment®.

Meanwhile, at Houston Community College’s San Jacinto building everyone gathered for a fall protection demonstration.
