Today kicks off Mortenson's participation in the seventh annual Construction Safety Week. Safety Week started in 2014, when more than 40 national and global construction firms joined forces with a single aim — to inspire everyone in the industry to be leaders in safety.

Safety Week continues to gain momentum with a growing number of members and sponsors. We continue to focus on our original mission of:

  • Thanking workers for supporting safety and recognizing their efforts to be injury free.
  • Increasing awareness of the importance of being committed to safety every day.
  • Encouraging everyone to share best practices and to work together to strengthen the industry's safety culture.
  • Conducting on-site safety awareness activities to support education.

Projects are most successful when our customers share our zero injury mission. Thank you to our partners at Advocate Aurora Health, featured above, for embracing the importance of a strong safety culture and helping our project teams live well.
