Construction Site Safety Is A Team Effort
Excellent risk management, and construction site safety, cannot be achieved without an all-inclusive and comprehensive effort. The components must all interact and interlock to be successful. What are the components for a safe work place?
- An insurance carrier that provides tools and guidance for their client.
- An insured that has ownership and a management team committed to safe practices.
- A clear set of company safety policies and protocols for all employees.
- A carefully guided and trained workforce energized and committed to safety.
- A clearly written procedure for those that fail to meet or follow safety goals and policies.
- A clear set of enforcement measures for set policy and processes.
- A reward system for all concerned parties for accomplishing safety goals.
If any one component is missing, construction site safety cannot be achieved. And once there is a missing component, unsafe practices can become a company mindset. That is why safety is never a stagnant object. Safety can be an elusive ever moving objective, that requires constant attention and inventiveness to achieve.
