Description

Safety has always been of an upmost importance for construction companies. So, why is there accidents still occurring as often as they are every year and what can we as construction managers do to prevent them? After researching online, talking to a safety engineer, and employees from a few different construction companies, we have found that accidents do happen, regardless of how much effort goes into a safety plan, but construction companies are always looking for ways to improve safety protocols. We are looking at safety in general, but will be specifying more of in air safety ( i.e., roofing, multi-story buildings, etc.). All companies have their own safety plans to go along with PPE and OSHA, but is there something’s that even OSHA should research more in to? Absolutely. Julio being in roofing, knows all too well of the dangers that are present in everyday activities in the air, and this is why we are choosing to research what can be done to protect more workers and hopefully bring attention to our solutions.
