On Thursday September 17, 2015 Med-Tex Services participated in Skanska USA Injury-Free Environment event which was held at the Philadelphia Catering Company on Christopher Columbus Blvd. in South Philadelphia. The event was attended by members of Skanska’s Safety Team, Skanksa Management and Sub-contractors. This was a great opportunity for sub-contractors to have an open forum with Skanska Safety Professionals discussing methods and means of reducing injuries on construction sites. The format worked well with Skanska’s Safety Team putting challenges to the break-out groups and then discussing the outcomes of the discussions. Med-Tex Services was proud and honored to be asked to participate in the IFE event.
More Skanska’s IFE:
For over ten years, Skanska has been committed to providing an injury free environment. IFE is more than safety. It is a culture of care and concern for people, which encourages everybody to accept responsibility for their own and their colleagues’ well-being. The aim is to engage with the entire workforce so that we look out for one another to ensure that everyone returns home from work safely to their family and friends. IFE creates a mindset intolerant of any incident or injury, not compromised by cost or schedule. IFE Training is compulsory for our employees and subcontractors, with regular refresher training to refocus on our commitment to our IFE culture.
