PLH Group and its 11 pipeline and power line construction companies will once again participate in Safe + Sound Week. The annual Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) event — held this year from August 10-16 — recognizes workplace health and safety programs, as well as educates and provides suggestions to organizations about additional ways to keep our country’s workers safe. PLH Group will recognize the week by organizing its workforce spanning North America to discuss some of the most important health and safety topics.
PLH Group is a comprehensive pipeline construction, powerline construction, and specialty contractor that provides energy-related solutions throughout North America. Known for being an industry leader, PLH Group goes beyond prioritizing safety, making health and safety an ethic and value throughout each of its entities. Though PLH Group has participated in past Safe + Sound Week events, this year’s event will be especially meaningful in the midst of the COVID-19 global pandemic.
“Safe + Sound Week represents a week where we — as an organization serving communities throughout North America — discuss the same health and safety topics throughout each of our teams. Unifying workers on safety matters is always a necessity. This year, though, it is especially important for organizations across the country — and globe — to focus on the health and safety of our workforces to ensure we are continually operating with safety as priority,” said Elsie Bentley, PLH Group Vice President of Safety, Health, and Environmental.
During Safe + Sound Week, all PLH Group entities will participate in specific safety-related discussions and events. Teams throughout the organization will focus on three primary health and safety topics, which will be tailored to each team’s specific work conditions and practices.
These topics are:
Walking is Working
COVID-19 and Other Stresses
Proper Use of Face Coverings
“Organizing PLH Group’s distanced workforce to participate in Safe + Sound Week may not physically bring us together, but certainly focuses our mindsets as one team on what matters most to our organization — the safety and health of our workforce,” said Elsie Bentley.
