Safety

 

Successful contractors view jobsite safety as the most important consideration in daily operations, taking keen interest in both the well being and productivity of their employees. Properly trained and equipped employees are a necessity in the modern construction realm of competition, regulation, inventive scheduling and social pressures.

 
Serious accidents and injuries wreak havoc on victims' families, friends and co-workers and bring jobsite production and profitability to a grinding halt. In addition, "willful" type incidents are garnering more attention from federal and local prosecutors who have the authority to impose criminal charges against supervisors and owners.
