PENTA concludes annual Western Safety Kick-Off Tour

The PENTA Building Group wrapped up an annual, multicity safety tour, hosting three major events that brought together thousands of construction professionals. The 17th annual Safety Kick-Off events served as an expo where dozens of vendors showcased product, while PENTA hosted a seminar that aimed to educate conference attendees on matters of safety — ensuring safety remains top-of-mind for those in the construction industry.

PENTA made stops at sports stadiums and convention centers in Phoenix, Anaheim, California, and Las Vegas, delivering a key message of prioritizing job-site safety in the markets where they operate.

Each event was action-packed and included: an expo where industry vendors featured the latest safety equipment and technologies; an award ceremony honoring individuals and companies with exemplary dedication to safety; inspiring presentations from industry experts; the unveiling of PENTA’s 2024 safety campaign “Safety At Our Core in 2024;” raffles, prizes and a fully catered lunch.

“Safety is at the core of our business, and we host this event every year to make sure our teams are focused on doing everything we can to ensure our employees, trade partners and anyone involved on a PENTA project are safe,” said PENTA President and CEO John Cannito. “We will never stop pushing that message forward.”

In addition to the Safety Kick-Off events, PENTA’s commitment to safety is channeled through a comprehensive company-wide approach, encompassing quarterly safety-stand down events, continuous safety monitoring on job sites, as well as a strong emphasis on recording, analyzing and sharing data in order to improve safety protocols internally and externally using its network connections with leading industry organizations.
