Caterpillar has introduced a new safety program specifically designed for individuals in the construction industry.
Speak Up!/Listen Up! for Construction is a safety-training tool developed by 16 contractors, including Atkinson Construction, Bechtel Corporation and Kiewit Corporation.
Designed to foster safe work environments, the program’s objective is to help employees overcome anxiety in giving or receiving safety-related feedback.
Videos, presentation materials, handouts and a facilitator’s guide help provide individuals content that reflects specific challenges and risks in the industry.
The program is available in English, and general industry versions of the tool are available in 25 languages.
