At STC, we believe that safety is the most important aspect of every job. Last week, we had the opportunity to celebrate safety in the workplace during one of our favorite weeks of the year, Safe + Sound Week! This is such an important week because we get to celebrate the importance of safety in the workplace. Here is everything you need to know about Safe + Sound Week and how we celebrated at STC:

What is Safe + Sound Week

Safe + Sound Week is an event celebrated nationwide over the course of a week in August. This is an event for recognizing the successes of workplace health and safety programs. During this week, companies around the country get their employees together to celebrate their success and provide information and ideas about keeping their workplace safe. 

Why Every Organization Should Participate

By participating in Safe + Sound Week, you are making an effort to recognize the importance of safety in the workplace for your organization. By implementing health and safety programs, and celebrating their success, your organization will be actively preventing injuries and fatalities in the workplace. No job is too safe to skip over safety measures, so it is crucial that each employee understands that each of their actions can make your workplace safer. 

How STC Celebrated Safe + Sound Week

Each of our employees makes a lifelong commitment to safety, and Safe + Sound Week is when we get to look back on our successes. We consider each day that an employee goes home to their family a success, because the safety procedures at their work helped make it happen. Every day, employees all over the world suffer through injuries and fatalities at work that could have been prevented. We make it our mission to ensure that safety is the number one priority. 

No matter how, or when, you choose to celebrate safety successes in the workplace, STC is here to help make safety the top priority in your organization.

At STC, we believe that creating a strong safety culture is a crucial factor for the success of every business. When your safety precautions are backed by a culture of knowledge, you are able to increase efficiency and decrease accidents in the future. There is no better time to form your own safety culture than right now. Here are the top five elements for creating a stronger safety culture from STC:

1. Continually Updating Safety Precautions

As we have seen with the COVID-19 pandemic, safety precautions are something that can change quite frequently. While we learn more about specific safety topics, we will also continue to learn more about creating better precautions for safeguarding against them. That is why it is crucial to continually update your businesses safety precautions based on recommendations from OSHA, WHO, CDC and your safety partners at STC.

2. Internal Safety Training for All Employees

Since safety precautions are bound to change over time, so too will the necessary trainings that employees receive while on the job. These trainings can range from things like COVID-19 safety, new equipment safety and even common safety practices that should be re-taught regularly. There’s never a bad time to teach safety at the job site.

3. External Training from Your Partner in Safety

One of our primary goals when working with clients is to create a safety culture for their business. We teach employees and employers the importance of practicing proper safety precautions, while also helping you change the way your employees think and talk about safety. STC is dedicated to preserving human life by teaching that safety comes before all else on the job.

4. Bringing Employees Together to Form a Safety Culture

Creating a safety culture for your business starts from the ground up. While it is important for management to adhere to and teach proper safety precautions, the real change starts happening when employees are all equally motivated to practice safety. In every safety-positive work environment, the employees are as adamant about safety precautions as management.

5. Holding Each Other Accountable to Safety Standards

If every employee, from management to the lowest level workers, are equally as dedicated to safety, your company will see some major benefits. Accidents and incidents will lower due to each employee holding themselves and others accountable to practicing proper safety. Every job is different, so each employee must be accountable for learning and practicing safety.

No matter how you choose to improve the safety culture of your business, STC is here to help you make it simple. Our instructor-led trainings, managed safety services and safety consulting services are all aimed towards helping you build a strong culture around safety in your workplace.

At STC, we believe that success is a team effort and we are truly grateful for all of the powerful players on our team that make success happen every day. 2020 was a difficult year for everyone, but each member of our team came together to unite under one goal, keeping our clients safe. Recently, we had the chance to sit down with our CEO, Scot Thomas, to discuss the difficulties faced in 2020 and our game plan for moving forward in the new year. Here are some of the most valuable insights from Scot:

What were some of the biggest wins STC accomplished in 2020?

“Without a doubt, our biggest win of 2020 was helping our clients navigate the uncertainties of COVID-19. Our clients had to balance the need to keep their jobs progressing while maintaining a safe and healthy worksite. STC came together as a team, all hands on deck, to find solutions that helped our clients be successful in their business. We allowed their people to go home safely to their families each day and the experience taught us how to be nimble, responsive and proactive problem solvers.”

What were some of the biggest challenges STC faced in 2020?

“We count ourselves very blessed for several reasons. Neither any of us at STC, nor our clients, have seen the likes of anything we experienced with Covid. Plenty of business went into defense mode and waited to see what would happen. At STC we went on the offense. We got more engaged with our clients. We planned and strategized more than ever before and we did our best to ensure our clients had what they needed from all of us. If we didn’t have the strength of our team, the outcome could have been very different for STC, our clients and their employees. I’m just so proud of the work they all did.”

What are the most notable accomplishments you have seen in the 10 years STC has been in business?

“We have truly become a unicorn farm here at STC! Most companies dream of hiring one unicorn (a mythical creature everyone wants to work with) but STC has managed to assemble a team of them over the last 10 years and is gaining a ton of traction. Everyone on our team is united around our 5 core values which have really helped us bring in the right talent.

  • Passionately Help Others Win

  • Make Great Plays

  • Be Genuinely Authentic

  • Earn a Seat at the Table

  • Enjoy the Journey

Our people have our values in their bones and bleed STC Orange.”

How did COVID-19 affect the way you approached safety culture in 2020, and how do you anticipate that changing in 2021?

“We have enjoyed helping the construction industry evolve in technology and create unique ways to reach their employees, partners and customers. We believe this newly developed skillset will be a continued practice in 2021 and another tool in the toolshed for our clients as they build their company cultures. What we also learned is that you can’t go about safety passively. You have to own it and drive it into your culture intentionally.”

Which safety trends will STC focus on in 2021?

“Engagement in middle management. STC has seen overwhelming support from owners, executives, and general employees and now we see some great opportunities to equip those individuals in setting up the jobs with proactive tools and strategies to eliminate risky conditions before they surface. A big component of this effort will be maximizing the project management software solutions being used by our clients to include safety plans. In addition, we will focus on improving the communication during critical phases between project manager and field employees.”

What are your goals for STC in 2021?

“We have some aggressive growth plans around new strategic partnerships and our portfolio growth. We are very excited to announce our launch of the Atlanta region and would like to thank all of our clients that are supporting our expansion effort.”

When you look at the team you’ve built at STC, what makes you the proudest?

“Watching our team become passionate about helping others is my greatest joy. It’s what we are known for… our people. We strive to be a company of “Givers”.”

Are there any vendors or partners that should be mentioned who make your work possible?

“A huge part of our success has been our professional partnerships with some of the best commercial insurance firms in our region. Thank you; Mullis Newby & Hurst, Swingle Collins & Associates, Boyd Shackleford, Barnett, and Dixon. Your Passion for your client’s safety and success is infectious!

We are also grateful for Tie Down Safety (Tie Down Engineering) and CRS Inc. (Commercial Roofing Supply), as these companies really bring our safety vision to life with their innovative safety equipment and solutions. True Partners!”
