Safety is the most important consideration in every industry, but perhaps even more so in construction since there are so many things that can go wrong on a job site, from incomplete (or no) training on equipment use to various slip, trip, and fall hazards. There are regulations set forth by the government, specifically OSHA. Companies are required to comply with these regulations. Many go steps further and develop internal safety plans and controls. As a construction manager or a worker, you have a responsibility to keep yourself, your environment, and your co-workers as safe as possible. In this module we'll focus on some of the conditions on job sites that are responsible for the most accidents, injuries, and fatalities. We'll also discuss steps a construction company can take to ensure the safety of everyone on every job!
