ABC will be observing Construction Safety Week 2019 from May 6-10 with an awareness campaign highlighting member achievements in safety performance and our collective commitment to creating the conditions for all to do their work without incident and go home safe and healthy every day.

Among the headline events of the week, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration will host its sixth annual National Safety Stand-down to Prevent Falls in Construction with events across the country to improve compliance and save lives. ABC chapters and members can find local events to attend as well as guidance on hosting a stand-down and registering their event if it’s open to the public. Visit for advice on engaging your team with an event guide, toolbox talks, messages to share and more ideas to promote safety as an industry priority.

Look for daily Safety Week social media posts from ABC and Construction Executive, including highlights from the 2019 Safety Performance Report demonstrating the effectiveness of the STEP safety management system and articles featuring member safety performance leaders.
