Pennoni Perspective Volume 22 • Issue 2 • Summer 2018 - Page 8

Construction Safety Week is a fantastic initiative that Pennoni is proud to support. To learn more about the initiative, check out their home page: Keep an eye for our activities next year! “I want everybody to be happy, go home and hug their kids, pet their dog, or go on trips. If you hurt yourself, you won’t be able to do that.” Watch some stories our staff shared about why safety is important to them. Every May, firms around the world participate in Safety Week. Safety Week is an initiative from the partnership of the Construction Industry Safety Initiative (CISI) group and Incident and Injury-Free® (IIF®) CEO Forum. With more than 80 national and global firms partnering in the event, the construction industry comes together to “inspire everyone in the industry to be leaders in safety.” This year’s Safety Week, May 7th to May 11th, marked Pennoni’s fifth year of participation. Centered around the 2018 Theme: The Power of Safe Choices, staff throughout the firm were encouraged to join in on the Safety Week festivities including training events and office safety meetings. Pennoni also promoted Safety Week through our social network with employee video testimonials and safety toolbox talks. Employees were asked to share how safety positively affects their lives. With posts from Philadelphia to Winter Haven, Akron to Virginia Beach, we received a tremendous response from our staff. Check out some of the posts to the left.
