EDiS Observes OSHA National Stand-Down for Safety Week 2023

May 4, 2023 • 3 MIN READ

May 1-5 is OSHA National Stand-Down for Safety Week across the country and EDiS Company is proud to contribute to a Culture Of Safety by holding safety talks at the Crystal Run Elementary School, Avenue North, and Del Tech South-East Renovation projects. Director of Safety & Health Jim Ruggiero led these talks alongside each project’s superintendent. Prepared with informational hand-outs, a comprehensive speech, and a readiness to answer any questions or concerns held by workers, Jim got right to work.

Educating construction workers about fall prevention was Jim’s primary goal throughout these talks, explaining the do’s and dont’s on an active job site. Stand-downs provide a way for employees to talk to management about an upcoming fall prevention method to be used in the future. It can also be an opportunity to engage contractors in conversation to share their experience in fall prevention and hazard awareness preparation.

National Safety Stand-Down Week may be over for this year, but Jim Ruggiero’s job isn’t. Job site safety is always on his radar and his efforts to spread awareness about safe practices is ongoing. EDiS will continue to work closely with him to showcase his continuous efforts to mitigate hazards, document compliance to safety standards, and to ensure worker safety throughout each and every one of our projects.
