It is a given that Building Construction is a high-risk industry! Statistics inform us that construction workers comprise about 5% of the workforce, yet represent approximately 20% of the nations workplace fatalities! There is a need to change this!
To become a "Successful Business" an effective Safety and Health Program is a critical component of your strategic plan! Safety must be "built in" to the process of doing business, not an afterthought! A Safety and Health Program should be more than a manual on the shelf or a catchy "slogan" on a banner. Safety needs to be a "core value!"
A project done safely increases profits by improving productivity, improving quality and improving morale. The more efficient the project operations are, will inherently benefit the competitive advantage and put your company in a better light to the customer and to the community.
