With that being said, as a member of the construction industry, are you aware of how many construction related fatalities occur nationwide every year?
To avoid such incidences from happening on your jobsites, it is the responsibility of both employer and employee to ensure your personal protection equipment are in working condition and any machines and tools are operating safely before beginning your work day.

As partners in this industry, it is important to emphasize that safety is everyone’s responsibility; therefore, working together to keep safety a top priority will have long-lasting benefits for construction companies, our employees, and their families.
