About Skanska Safety Week
Skanska Safety Week began in 2005 and is now a part of the Skanska calendar. It is important to us because it provides an opportunity to emphasize the role that safety has in our values—Care for Life, Be Better Together, Work Ethically and Transparently. Which is not limited to Skanska employees and involves anyone working on a Skanska project. We are concerned about the well-being of everyone in the construction industry.
In 2014 Safety Week activities Skanska colleagues reached out to industry colleagues to make Safety Week a more inclusive event with competitors, suppliers and contractors, clients and designers taking part. In the USA, Finland and Poland Safety Week is an industry event making an impact upon the lives of those in construction.
Main theme: Plan – Do – Check – Act
For 2017 our main theme for Skanska Safety Week was "Plan – Do – Check - Act" with a sub-theme of Health and Well-being.
PDCA is an important topic for us because we know that by careful planning, following up on what we planned to do and then analyze where we can improve, we can manage the safety hazards put controls in place and continuously improve safety at the workplace.
