Ask any construction business owner, regardless of the size of their firm, what their top priority is and you will probably get the same response every time—worker safety. The real question owners should be asking their general contractors is whether their safety program is vigorous enough to meet their commitment to protecting their workers. Four of the leading causes of construction worker fatalities are falls, electrocutions, being struck by objects, and being caught in or between objects. OSHA has dubbed these the “Fatal Four” and that typically accounts for over half of all construction worker deaths each year. Construction is one of the most dangerous industries to work in, which is why programs and initiatives like Construction Safety Week (May 3 - 7, 2021) are so important to raising awareness about the importance of construction safety. Our commitment to staying safe and focusing on the job is a point of pride and strength that runs across our entire company. This is why—as individuals and a team—we must be alert, observant and always looking out for each other’s back.
