PASADENA, CA (April 26, 2016) – Parsons, a worldwide leader in occupational health and safety, is pleased to announce that it is both a Safety Week 2016 (May 2 – 6) sponsor and participant. Safety Week is promoted by more than 40 national and global construction firms that participate in the Construction Industry Safety Initiative (CISI) and the Incident & Injury-Free (IIF) Executive Forum with the goal of inspiring everyone in the industry to be leaders in safety.
“Parsons has a comprehensive safety management system and empowers every employee to stop work if necessary to protect their safety and health, as well as the safety and health of those around them,” said Brad Barber, Parsons Corporate Vice President of Safety, Health & Environment (SH&E). “Safety is a core value at Parsons, and we are proud to take this opportunity to place extra emphasis on safety in the workplace and at home.”
