It's Safety Week!
United Fire Group Safety Dividend Program
Nomination Deadline for the 14th MB EYE on the Future class is May 26th
The Mission of Safety Week is to collectively raise the awareness of the construction industry's continuing commitment to eliminating worker injury, and to clearly communicate its dedication to a shared culture of care and concern and the belief that every week must be Safety Week. Every year, Safety Week works to engage companies across the U.S. to refocus and reenergize our commitment to reducing injuries on job sites. We walk on to different work sites with different jobs, trades and tasks. But one thread connects all of us - not just to each other, but to everyone who depends on us at home - safety.

It is not too late to celebrate Safety Week at your company! Visit the
Safety Week Website to download logos, email signatures, templates and theme descriptions to use in your newsletters/websites/social media accounts.
