Putting physical and psychological wellbeing at the forefront to keep construction workers safe. Greg Savage, JMJ Managing Consultant, and Rebecca Severson, Corporate Director of Safety at Gilbane Building Company, talk about the evolution of Construction Safety Week. They discuss the importance of this year’s theme, ‘holistic safety’, and explain why placing physical and mental health at the forefront is critical to keeping construction workers safe.
