Procore.org is working to empower the construction industry and the communities it serves, and one way they aim to achieve this is through supporting non-profit organizations that are helping to build and rebuild within local communities. As Construction Safety Week approaches (May 7-11), Procore is excited to announce their partnership with National Hispanic Entrepreneurs’ Organization (NHEO) Institute, a United States non-profit focused on the construction and engineering industry.
NHEO Institute is committed to identifying ways to improve the safety and health conditions of construction business owners, construction workers and their families—especially those hard to reach or those who need extra help due to cultural and language barriers. Through the organization’s Building a Safer Future campaign , they are raising awareness to reduce and eliminate construction-related hazards.
“We are delighted to partner with Procore to improve safety and health conditions for all construction workers across the country. Their commitment to the construction industry and the communities it serves is aligned with our vision. This partnership will provide great resources to support our national campaign and better serve our community, and we look forward to a long term collaboration,” said Max Cruz-Gallardo, NHEO Institute board member who works for Bechtel Corporation.
As part of the partnership, NHEO Institute members have received early access to the Procore Safety Qualified program, the online learning initiative designed to give construction professionals the specific technical tools and knowledge they need to create a culture of safety awareness on every jobsite. Procore Safety Qualified consists of free online classes that focus on the five most common Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) violations, and they will be open to everyone starting May 7th.

“Procore's partnership with NHEO Institute signifies our commitment to increasing awareness about safety while focusing our efforts to support under-represented groups within the industry," said Danielle Edberg, senior manage of Industry Advancement.
