“Kate’s Story” tells the tragic story of Jacobs employee Kate Carpenter (London, UK), whose husband, John Kinns, also an employee, lost his life as the result of injuries sustained in the field.
Produced internally by Jacobs, the video has been shown and discussed at office meetings around the globe and has had a profound impact within the company. The video is now available for employees to view and share with family, friends, business partners, and clients.
Please take Kate’s message to heart.
Jacobs is proud to sponsor Safety Week, an initiative of more than 40 national and global construction firms that have joined forces with a single aim: to inspire everyone in the industry to be leaders in safety.
During Safety Week, May 2-6, 2016, Jacobs employees worldwide celebrated our BeyondZero® culture of caring with workshops, contests, commitment poster signings, lunches, and even dance performances. Offices and job sites learned about our daily topics:
- Controlling Energy Risks
- Positive Mental Health
- Travel Security
Whether you are an employee or prospective employee, a client, subcontractor, competitor, or just an interested member of the public, we
hope you’ll join the Safety Week community.

Each year, the National Safety Council (NSC) in the U.S. recognizes ten CEOs who demonstrate a personal commitment to world-class safety. In 2014, Jacobs' Craig Martin was one of the leaders selected and featured in Safety+Health Magazine’s 2014 CEOs Who “Get It” feature.
According to Jim Johnson, vice president of workplace safety initiatives at NSC, these leaders have instilled within their organizations the four pillars of the Journey to Safety Excellence: leadership and engagement, safety management systems, continuous risk reduction, and performance measurement. “The Council is honored to recognize such strong examples of safety leadership in this year’s group of CEOs Who ‘Get It,’” Johnson said. “We hope other leaders follow suit with a steadfast dedication to the journey.”
