Erin Conlan - Safety Manager

Years with Skanska

What is your safety pledge?

Safety isn’t just a program to run or a training to provide – and it’s not about the numbers. Safety is the responsibility of every employee to ensure everyone goes home in the same condition they came to work. Safety is the commitment of every employee to behave in a safe way, to make safe decisions and to genuinely care for yourself and for others. It’s a journey that’s never over – but one that’s certainly worth the effort!

How has IFE impacted my life?

As a Safety Manager, I have always felt responsible for ensuring a safe workplace for all of our employees but IFE takes this responsibility to a new level. IFE makes this responsibility real – it makes it personal. It has changed the way I approach both my professional and personal life. I am always looking for ways to empower and encourage everyone to be aware of their actions, to stop unsafe acts or conditions, to plan injury-free work and to believe that all incidents and injuries are preventable.
