As part of any construction project management strategy, safety should be a number one priority. If you have partnered with a commercial construction company to manage your construction project, make sure that they offer a safety program as part of their services. Without it, your business and building project could be faced with a number of problems. Firstly, injury to workers can result in legal action as well as downtime due to reduced labor. Providing alternative staff members to fill in will also create additional costs for the project.
Safety should come first in the commercial construction environment. All construction sites are expected to meet with the minimum OSHA requirements, but this doesn’t necessarily deter accidents on-site. Negligence and disregard for safety regulations are often the causes of accidents and this is why it is vitally important for your commercial construction manager to put your safety plan in writing and distribute it amongst all workers. Clearly marked signage warning of danger and instructing specific safety procedures is also a must as it can safeguard your business from serious legal ramifications and can also prevent accidents from happening in the first place.
OSHA provides regular stats on deaths occurring on construction sites. Recent reports have shown that leading causes of death have been workers being struck with heavy objects, electrocution, falling and being caught between heavy objects / machinery. According to OHSA, most of these deaths could have been avoided in the past if time was taking to set a preventative safety program in place.
