Safety Week

Safety Week at Del E. Webb School of Construction is an opportunity to highlight the importance of safety in every aspect of the construction industry starting in the classroom.

Safety Week brings safety professionals into the construction classroom to emphasize safety in every aspect of a project. The event introduces safety as a career to students and demonstrates the various ways companies keep their employees safe. It also showcases the safety equipment available.

Safety Week culminates with the annual Safety Days and the DEWSC Vesting Ceremony, during which incoming students receive their own personal protective equipment (PPE). This sets a safety standard as they begin their academic career at ASU and provides needed equipment to attend site visits and tours with their classes.

In addition to targeted safety messages in our academic courses, we offer several low-cost events open to the public.

Safety workshops are offered for construction industry professionals at all levels, including managers and executives. Workshops cover strategies for promoting and implementing safety at all levels of an organization, and specific OSHA courses, such as Managing Excavation Hazards.
