There is a major need for proper safety protocol on any type of jobsite, and the construction industry is certainly no exception. With such physical work, there is no room for mistakes — especially if your workers aren’t appropriately protected from the risks included in their laborious tasks. Construction work has a higher fatality rate than the average American occupation, which is why OSHA regulations can be justifiably stricter for the construction industry.

At OECS, we perform audits, make sure your job site is compliant, train employees and can offer a wide variety of other services custom to your situation. Hiring a safety consulting company will pay for itself through fewer workers comp claims and more days on the job.

Work with an experienced partner

Simplify your construction safety management with an experienced partner and written programs that can be easily understood and implemented. OECS offers jobsite audits that are pictorial with narratives that accurately show what needs to be reviewed and what is being done well. This information improves your company’s ability to plan effective commercial construction safety training, and change behaviors where it matters most.

Build a Better Safety Plan

If you’re in charge of safety at a construction site, there are many factors you need to take into consideration that you wouldn’t find at other types of businesses. Unfortunately, the fatality rate in commercial construction is higher than in other industries. It’s important to take a proactive approach to your safety goals in order to stop costly mishaps before they occur.

Some of the most common risks at a commercial construction site include:

  • Falls
  • Collapsing building components
  • Repetitive motion injuries
  • Electric shocks
  • Burns
  • Hearing damage
  • Heat strokes
