Supporting the National Safety Stand-Down
The strength of A/Z’s safety culture is apparent in all areas of our operations. The health and well-being of our clients, personnel, and partners are our top priorities in every task we undertake. This dedication was at the core of A/Z’s recent participation in the National Safety Stand-Down event.
The National Safety Stand-Down focuses on raising awareness on fall prevention in the construction sector. The campaign has been promoted by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health and National Occupational Research Agenda (NORA). Participants are encouraged to gather their employees to discuss fall hazard awareness and the prevention of fall fatalities and injuries.
A/Z and our employees took the National Safety Stand-Down very seriously, pausing work at sites across the region to engage our staff and subcontractors. At each location, our teams held discussions regarding fall hazards, protective methods, and our safety policies, goals, and expectations.
Our corporate EH&S Department and supervisory personnel regularly conduct a host of safety-focused activities on our project sites in addition to this event. These include regular toolbox talks, pre-work hazard analyses, and regular, ongoing training for our personnel. We are committed to providing our employees with the tools and resources they need to conduct their work to the highest standards of safety.
