Safety on construction sites, as we all know, is of vital importance. As of late, safety has become more of a priority on worksites, resulting in less accidents, and a more safety conscientious workforce.
Despite this, enforcing safety continues to be an ongoing issue on some construction sites. Here are a few tips on how to ensure that your crew adheres to safety regulations:
Provide The Right Equipment
In order to enforce safety, the proper equipment needs to be provided. Ensure that all workers have access to the appropriately-sized and properly functioning equipment and gear to safely complete the task at hand.
Having daily safety talks is a great way to remind your crew of pertinent safety issues, potential worksite hazards, and any relevant safety issues.
Mean What You Say
If your company policy is verbal warning, followed by a written warning, followed by disciplinary action, follow through with it. Follow-through with policies.
Make Safety a Priority
Let your team know that you take safety seriously and that the health and safety of all employees is of vital importance.
Lead By Example
Ensure that you adhere to all safety policies and regulations. Show your team that following the safety rules is important for all employees, including yourself.
