2022 Safety Week Recap
This year, Construction Safety Week was celebrated from May 2 – May 7 and we knew this was a perfect time for our annual KeeleySafe Safety Week! Here at Keeley, the safety of our people is our number one priority. Our dedicated Keeley’ns across the nation work every day to drive our vision and lead our company to growth and success year after year. We wanted to take this week to celebrate our incredible safety culture, our world-class team members, and have the opportunity to bring KeeleySafe home to our families. During the week, a new safety topic was presented, and we ended the week with one of our favorite events of the year, Safety Fair!
Family Tip #1: Summer Driving Safety
More kids are outside and near or in the road, so be sure to stay alert.
Summer road trips can lead to a lot of distractions. Let passengers handle the radio, stop often for breaks, and don’t drive longer than needed – everyone needs sleep!
Summer heat is going to kick in. Never leave children or pets in cars unattended.
Family Tip #2: Yard Work Safety
Wear PPE. Closed-toed shoes and safety glasses are essential for any yard work. Some work may require additional PPE like hearing protection, sleeves, gloves, and more. Make sure you have the proper PPE for your task.
Stay safe in the sun. Wear sunscreen, a hat, and light layers to protect your skin. Even when it’s overcast or cloudy, you are still at risk of sun exposure. Make sure you are taking these steps to protect yourself.
The summer months can get hot across the nation. When you or your family are out in the heat, make sure you remember the three most important tips to avoiding head stroke and exhaustion – rest, water, and shade!
Family Tip #3: Kid’s Cyber Safety
Don’t talk to strangers! Don’t communicate to strangers online and never agree to meet in person. Tell a parent, teacher, or adult you trust if a stranger contacts you in a chat room, through email, or via text messaging.
Don’t enter contests, join clubs, or share your personal information for any reason unless your parents say it’s OK. Your name, address, age, phone number, email address, where you go to school, and other facts about you are personal and shouldn’t be shared without checking first.
If the offer seems too good to be true, then it probably is! How many of us have every received an email offering something free, like a cell phone or concert tickets? These are tricks designed to get you to give up personal information or click on links that will automatically install malware or spyware.
Family Tip #4: Kid’s Pet Safety
Never pet or touch a strange dog or cat that you don’t know, even if it seems friendly.
If a dog starts running toward you, don’t run. Many dogs’ first instincts will be to chase you. Instead, stand very still and then try to walk away slowly if you feel you’re in danger.
Never bother a pet while it’s sleeping, eating, or with its babies.
If you are afraid of a dog, or if a dog tries to bite you, make an adult aware of the situation right away so they can notify the dog’s owner.
We were so excited to finally bring back our Safety Fair and celebrate with our families! It was a beautiful day filled with fun, laughter, education, delicious food, and of course, Keeley Swag. Our leadership team even hopped in the dunk tank!
Thank you to our Keeley’ns for their commitment to ZERO and staying safe every day, and thank you to our families for your steadfast support!
