CF Evans is sponsoring a Safety Week Art Contest to promote the importance of workplace safety by asking children, “What does it look like when mom/dad work safe?” The art contest is open to children ages 4-12 and a winner from each Group will be selected by a third-party judge (to be announced). Prizes to be announced at a later date. Click to learn all about the contest.
The mission of Safety Week 2019 is to strengthen the construction industry’s safety culture and performance by sharing best practices, tools and resources. The theme of the 2019 safety campaign is “Safe by Choice.”
The Safety Week website explains the Safe by choice theme, noting “Safety Week 2019 celebrates our commitment to working Safe by Choice. In our roles, we face hundreds of choices, but none are more important than our choice to work safe. As stewards of construction safety, we empower that choice—to protect ourselves, our families and the communities in which we live and work. ”
During 2019 Safety Week, all CF Evans Construction sites will participate in an onsite safety meeting, which will focus on making safe choices, specifically addressing decisions made when installing and using fall protection systems/devices and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). The Construction Safety Week 2019 site meeting will be combined with OSHA’s Fall Protection Safety Stand Down event. During each meeting, the Safety Compliance Officer will recognize the top safety performing subcontractors on each site as our Champions of Safety. CF Evans’ Safety Week is sponsored by Sterling Seacrest Partners and Liberty Mutual.
CF Evans Construction has 79 employees at 14 jobsites throughout North and South Carolina.
