It is crucial to have a safe and secure construction site for your workers. Not only does it boost productivity, it also helps to keep them safe from potentially fatal accidents. The first thing you want to do, and this is probably the most important, is to make safety a top priority, this way the employees will know that comes first instead of cutting corners. Don’t try to save money by using old equipment, keep up to date with all of that. It’s also important to have regular inspections and hold people accountable for their actions.
- Frequent, ongoing, comprehensive safety training is one of the best ways of making your work sites safer.
- You can use wearable technology, drones and software to help watch for and mitigate risk.
- Perform serious, thorough safety inspections and hold people accountable for the results.
“The most effective way of improving safety on site is by emphasising safe practices on a daily basis. This means being driven by workplace and employee safety standards- rather than prioritising profits or production timelines.”
