As a construction manager, you know the importance of safety on the job site.
You understand that one wrong move can mean the difference between life and
death. That’s why it’s essential that you ensure that your workers get home safely
to their families each day. But it can be easy to get distracted by other issues,
such as data security, training, and costly support.

Unfortunately, the statistics show that construction remains one of the most
dangerous industries to work in. In 2019, there were 1,093 fatalities reported in
the construction industry. This was a slight decrease from 2018, but it still
accounts for 20.1% of all work-related fatalities.
Of these fatalities, the number and proportion of fatalities from struck-by
incidents (170; 15.4%) and electrocutions (79; 7.2%) decreased from 2018 to
2019, while the number of fatalities due to caught-in/between incidents (59;
5.4%) remained relatively constant.
These figures are a stark reminder of the importance of safety on the job site. As a
construction manager, it’s your responsibility to ensure that workers get home
safely each day. But how do you do this without getting distracted by other
issues?
The key is to focus on the basics. Make sure that everyone on your team is
properly trained and that they know what to do in the event of an emergency.
Make sure that your workers are wearing appropriate safety gear, such as hard
hats and safety glasses, and that they’re following the proper safety protocols.
In addition, you should also ensure that workers are aware of the potential risks
of their job. This includes the risks of working at heights, working with electricity,
and working with heavy machinery. Make sure that your workers understand the
importance of following safety procedures and that they’re aware of the potential
consequences of not doing so.
Finally, don’t forget about data security. By investing in the right software
solutions, you can make sure that the sensitive data of your workers is kept safe
and secure. This includes employee records, time and attendance, and internal
communications.
At the end of the day, the safety of your workers should be your top priority. By
taking the time to focus on the basics, you can ensure that everyone on your
team gets home safely each day. Don’t let data security, training, or costly
support get in the way of safety on the job site.
