I have been in the safety industry for 40 plus years.
Reduction of accidents, training, communication, inspections, education and follow-up are paramount in the construction industry, and involving the employees to keep safety in the forefront of the task at hand.
My goal in safety is to make sure the employees are trained in the best practices of safety, applying those practices and going home safe. They, the employees, are primary in all the phases of work we perform, making sure they are part of the safety program and not apart from the safety program.
My safety quote is “ People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care”
