Construction Safety Week – safety on a busy work site

Sent on behalf of Barnes-Jewish Hospital.

Constructing the new Barnes-Jewish Hospital patient care tower is complex with hundreds of workers performing dozens of tasks all around one another as they work toward the mid-2025 opening of 280 private rooms for heart & vascular patients, radiology and surgical prep and recovery. The work can pose hazards, regardless of how safely individuals work.

Just as patient and team member safety are important to BJC, so is the safety of every tradesperson and contractor. Hear workers explain why they appreciate the emphasis BJC and Campus Renewal general contractor, McCarthy Building Companies, put on safety every day and during construction safety week in early May.
