Sea Pointe Celebrates National Safety Month
June 2022 is dedicated as National Safety Month. Being a construction company, Sea Pointe takes pride in their incredible field workers and all the hard work they put into making our clients happy and getting the job done. With that said, although construction can be a rewarding job, it can also be incredibly risky and often dangerous without the necessary safety precautions.
In 1996, the National Safety Council established June as National Safety Month in hopes to spread awareness of leading safety and health risks in the work force. When dangers and hazards likely to cause harm are unaddressed, it goes without saying that there could be irreversible consequences. By celebrating National Safety Month, we are taking time to reflect on how to protect our employees while also choosing to foster healthy work relationships.
At Sea Pointe, we celebrate this month annually by bringing our field employees & project managers together for a day of fun activities, education, and team building. This annual event is organized by Debbie Kay, Sea Pointe’s Director of Construction, who puts a lot of time and effort into making this day both entertaining & informative. Not only is celebrating safety month educational, it is also a fun way for individuals to engage with their coworkers and build better team relationships.
The first official event was held in June of 2022 and was no doubt a success. The group was invited to an on-site location with food, beverages, and music. Individuals were placed onto teams and given color coordinated t-shirts with the words “Sea Point Production Team Safety Spectacular”.
The first game required the teams to acquire as many safety items as possible from their vehicles in under just three minutes, teaching the group the value of always carrying protection gear with them, especially when out in the field. The second task was a nail drilling competition, followed by a niche building contest. Everyone had a blast competing for a place in the top 3 and there was not a smile missing on anyone’s face.
The day was finished off with an educational trivia game and a few final words from Debbie to conclude this event. Medals & awards were also given out to the teams who placed 1st, 2nd, and 3rd in the games!
According to OSHA, or the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, one in ten construction workers are injured every year. Not only this, but the construction industry is #2 in the United Sates for fatal injuries. With this said, Sea Pointes efforts to further educate their employees on construction safety in a fun and entertaining manner not only encourages extra precaution in their line of work, but also promotes a healthy work environment and fosters team-like atmosphere.
Our field workers are no doubt some of the most valuable people in our company, and taking the time to appreciate everything they do for us is a necessity. By choosing to celebrate June as National Safety Month, we are choosing to make our field employees & their safety a priority, it is also a great excuse to celebrate everything they do for us!
