Empowering Voices for Construction Safety: Kitchell’s Commitment

Construction Safety Week is an annual event celebrated across the construction industry, highlighting the importance of safety protocols and practices in the workplace. To accompany this year’s “Value Every Voice” theme, Kitchell is gearing up for a week full of safety-focused activities, demonstrating our unwavering commitment to the well-being of their employees.

One of the cornerstone initiatives during Construction Safety Week is a series of stand-downs scheduled across all Kitchell job sites. These stand-downs provide an invaluable opportunity for workers to pause, reflect, and engage in discussions about safety procedures and potential hazards. Our teams are also participating in the National Safety Stand Down on May 8th, joining hands with industry peers to amplify the message of safety across the nation.

In addition to stand-downs, Kitchell has organized multiple demonstrations in collaboration with our partners and vendors, specifically focusing on fall protection. “Falls are one of the most common accidents in the construction industry,” said Eric Vogt, Kitchell’s Director of Safety. “By partnering with experts and showcasing the latest in fall protection equipment and techniques, we are equipping our workforce with the knowledge and tools necessary to mitigate this risk effectively.

Hard hat stickers and other materials will be distributed to reinforce our safety message and empower employees to identify and address unsafe work conditions proactively. These stickers serve as constant reminders of Kitchell’s dedication to fostering a culture of safety where every voice matters. By encouraging workers to speak up and report any safety concerns they encounter, Kitchell is fostering an environment where safety is not just a priority but a shared responsibility.

Construction Safety Week is not merely a time for lip service; it’s an opportunity for action and meaningful change. “At Kitchell, we uphold a commitment to value every voice and engage our employees in safety initiatives,” said Kitchell Contractors President, Chris Kirch. “In doing so, we’re not just safeguarding lives; we’re setting a gold standard of excellence for the entire construction industry.”

Together, we can construct not just buildings, but also an enduring culture of safety that impacts everyone who sets foot on our job sites.
