If you are the owner or manager of a construction site, as a business owner, your employee’s safety should be your number one priority. Take the necessary steps to protect your crew by following some of these helpful safety tips:

    • Appropriate signage: be sure to include on your construction site all the necessary warning information and make sure to list all of the potential dangers of the environment.
    • Keep your space well lit: nobody can be expected to work in the dark! Make sure to keep your construction site properly lit to ensure the efficient and safe work of your employees.
    • Put up Barriers: on your build site, always include crash cushions, sand bags, concrete barriers, water barriers, and other methods of protecting your workers from oncoming vehicles.
    • Proper training: a few primary causes of construction worker related injury or fatality are employer related: improper training, inexperienced workers, lack of safety instructions & poorly constructed platforms, such as scaffolds or ladders, are all correlated to employer negligence and could end up costing you much more money than you realize.
