Bringing Awareness to Two Important Safety Holidays with STC

At STC, we are dedicated to providing up-to-date information on the latest happenings in safety. This week, we are celebrating two national safety weeks, both National Stand-Down to Prevent Struck-By Incidents Week and National Work Zone Awareness Week. Here is everything you need to know about bringing awareness to your workplace from these two safety holidays:

National Work Zone Awareness Week

From April 11-15, we will be spreading awareness of work zone incidents in honor of the 2022 National Work Zone Awareness Week. This year, the event will be hosted by the Virginia Department of Transportation with the theme “Work Zones Are a Sign to Slow Down.” Between 2019 and 2020 alone, fatal crashes in work zones increased by an astounding 1.4 percent.

National Stand-Down to Prevent Struck-By Incidents

Coinciding with National Work Zone Awareness Week, this year we will also be celebrating the third annual National Stand-Down to Prevent Struck-By Incidents week. This year, they are expanding their holiday from a one-day event to a full week of safety awareness. The event is aimed at raising awareness of struck-by hazards and the varying ways to prevent them.

An Increase in Training is an Increase in Safety

There’s never a bad time to ensure that your crew has all of the training they need to stay safe on the job site. Whether it’s a high-speed work zone or a high-rise building project, there are always safety procedures that need to be followed to ensure your team makes it home safely. Helping crews stay safe is our passion and STC is always here to provide instructor-led training.

No matter how you choose to protect workers during these two safety holidays, STC is always here to help your entire organization stay safe at every step. We offer a wide variety of managed safety services, from onsite safety staffing to safety consulting to help prepare your employees for every situation. Want to learn more about STC?
