Seven Seconds
of Safety

Launched in June 2022, the Seven Seconds of Safety (7SOS) program is bringing heightened awareness of safety concerns to every EquipmentShare branch. By encouraging our team to take as little as seven seconds to ensure tasks can be performed safely, we protect our most important asset – our workers. We’ve also increased safety personnel and employee training sessions.
