As a construction manager, safety is your number one priority. You want to make
sure everyone gets home to their families safely after a hard day’s work. But in the hustle and bustle of the day-to-day operations, it’s easy to get bogged down by administrative nonsense like data security or software user training.
Unfortunately, those distractions can have real-world implications. According to the latest data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, small employers with fewer than 20 employees accounted for 75% of fatal falls between 2015 and 2017, despite making up only 39% of construction payroll employment.
These figures are alarming, but there are steps you can take to ensure your employees are safe from harm. It starts with instilling a culture of safety in your organization.
Make sure all employees understand the importance of safety and the consequences of not following safety protocols. Create a safety committee to bring together representatives from different departments and divisions to identify and address safety risks. Establish safety protocols and procedures, including regular safety inspections, and make sure all employees know the protocols and have access to the necessary safety gear.
In addition, you should also invest in safety training. Educate your employees on the risks of working at heights, the proper use of fall protection equipment, and the importance of proper ladder safety. Make sure everyone is aware of the safety regulations and any new safety procedures that have been put in place.
Finally, be sure to document all safety-related incidents and follow up with those involved. Doing so will help you identify any potential problems and develop strategies to address them.
By taking these steps, you can help ensure that your employees make it home safely after work each day, without getting distracted by administrative tasks. Your employees are your most valuable asset, and it’s up to you to ensure they remain safe and healthy.
