Safety and Compliance in Commercial Construction
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 for 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 regularly help commercial construction companies stay compliant and keep their hard workers safe. Choosing a construction safety company with high quality occupational safety services will pay for itself through fewer workers’ comp claims and more days on the job.
