Spend any time on a construction site and you are liable to wonder how the men and women on the crew are able to stay safe and be productive. They are able to do so because someone has made crew safety a priority.
Want to do the same for your crew? Here are three ways to keep your workers safe.
1. Make Sure Everyone is Properly Trained
Safety starts with training. Make time for your crew to review how the equipment works properly, know what the right safety attire everyone should wear and understand the rules of the site. Taking safety seriously will ensure mistakes won’t be made. Or if they are, the damage is minimized. Creating a prevention plan, says Haughn & Associates, will help you do that as well.
2. Hold Everyone Accountable
Employees should understand that they are just as responsible for the 0 as anyone else. Help them by ensuring safety rules and regulations are properly posted and easy to access and understand. Also, make sure your crew knows they are empowered to speak up when they notice something that could jeopardize the Jobsite.
3. Properly Insure Your Team
Having the right insurance policies in place will also protect your crew, whether it is simply the right liability product or something created specifically for the project. Work with your agent to figure out what will work best for you.
