Safe Week 2022

About Safety Week

We Are Stronger & Safer Together

Our mission is to strengthen our industry’s safety culture and performance by sharing best practices, tools and resources. We are focused on the impact our safe choices have on our team members, their families, and the communities in which we live and work. We are united in our commitment to continuously improve our safety culture and send each employee home safe every day.

Every day, we walk onto construction sites across the U.S. with one goal in mind – get the job done safely. We take great pride in the role we play shaping the communities in which we live, work and play. But even more than that, we feel an unwavering responsibility to one another and our families and friends at home. It’s what drives us in every decision we make and why we never back down from doing what’s right, and doing what’s safe.

Being safe every day on every job site crosses competitive boundaries. That’s why we have banded together to create and celebrate Safety Week. We are taking safety in our own hands. We know that it’s the little things, done well, every day and on every job, that make the difference. Weaving safety through everything we do unites us across the industry behind a common imperative. That’s why more than 70 national and global construction firms have joined forces with a single aim: to inspire everyone in the industry to be leaders in safety.

Why Do I Work Safe?

Setting a New Standard

From day one, Clayco has set out to be the leader in the industry for jobsite safety. That strategy has taken on a life of its own in creating an entire “safety net” over all we do. At Clayco, every team member is part of creating a SAFE PLACE. To work, to work with, to do business and trusting us with our clients’ most mission critical building projects.

With an amazing EMR of .57 and jobsite data across a wide variety of matrix we have proven year after year that we walk the walk. SAFETY is OUR FIRST PRIORITY. In fact, Clayco is proud to be a member of the Region VII  OSHA Voluntary Protection Programs (VPP) which recognize employers and workers in the private industry and federal agencies who have implemented effective safety and health management systems and maintain injury and illness rates below national Bureau of Labor Statistics averages for their respective industries.

Stretch & Flex Program

The goal of a company-sponsored, stretching program is to provide work-specific stretches to help our employees increase their overall flexibility and range-of-motion. These stretches will lengthen the muscle tissue making the muscles less prone to trauma, tears, and other types of injuries. A stretching program will also help muscles and tendons recover more quickly from job fatigue. It is a good idea to stretch before work activity, both at the beginning of a shift and after lunch breaks, at a minimum.

Clayco understands the need to recognize those working safely in the field.

Several methods of recognition are possible on a Clayco project, however, one of the key events is our annual Field Recognition safety event. All field workers are invited to attend a dinner and opportunity to receive some nice prizes. This event is held to show appreciation for the focus on safety all have made over the past year.

Best-In-Class Safety Program

As a result, our Experience Modification Rate, a rating system used by insurers to gauge risk of on-site injury, and our Total Injury Rate have beaten industry averages for the past nine years. We are continually improving our processes to enhance our zero injury culture preventing incidents through an organized safety and risk management approach that employs the following:
