Donegal builders told: "Be safe on site" 15.08.16

DONEGAL construction firms and tradespeople have been urged to be aware of on-site safety to reduce workplace accidents.
The advice comes from the Construction Industry Federation (CIF) ahead of its Construction Safety Week next month.
The BESMART awareness campaign commences on September 12, 2016 and includes week-long initiatives at construction sites and offices nationally.
The aim is to help construction companies establish a "safety mindset" among employees.
“We’re asking all construction companies and self-employed involved in the sector to take time this week to re-emphasis safety on site. The industry has been very successful in reducing workplace accidents and safety and health is now the cornerstone of the reputation of the construction industry," said CIF director general Tom Parlon.
"We want construction companies to run briefings, meetings, put up posters, reward schemes and delivering training to get their employees to think safety this week and every week."
The CIF said it would continue to work with the HSA and other members of the Construction Safety Partnership Advisory Committee to promote safety.
CIF safety committee chairman and director of Walls Construction, Frank Kelly added: "We want to hear your safety stories and see how you have instilled a safety culture in your organisation." Some of the activities during Construction Safety Week will include: on-site safety briefings; a social media campaign and presentation of awards to companies excelling in safety.
