Safety First

Construction Safety Week

During Safety Week, construction companies are taking the opportunity to acknowledge their employees for their commitment to safety and to drive awareness for safety on site. The week is also a chance to educate, inspire and share best practices on safety including issues surrounding mental health onsite.

Companies across Ireland are conducting safety awareness training, toolbox activities and demonstrations on sites throughout the country. Sherlock recruitment is also doing their bit to support these efforts. Throughout the month of October Sherlock have been offering free Safety Certification auditing to organisations within the construction industry. Making sure you and your team are fully covered and adequately trained up. Sherlock will come to your organisation and provide a full audit service of all your safety certifications. If there are any gaps or if you have staff who need updating, the expert team then help you to plan, source and structure all your training needs, so everyone is up to date, without negatively impacting your productivity.

The Irish construction sector is making a strong economic recovery and the numbers employed are increasing from 98,000 in 2012 to over 133,000 in 2017 – this is expected to rise to nearly 190,000 directly employed in the next 3 – 4 years.

Now is the time to reflect on how safety and health issues are managed and how can we improve on what we do?

Construction Safety Week is an opportunity to take stock of safety procedures training and work together to drive home the positive safety message. The need to consistently make safe choices must become a value that we live both at home and at work.
