Safety Training Contractors

Construction sites are responsible for thousands of workplace injuries, illnesses, and deaths every year in the United States alone, making them dangerous places to be. Even workers who aren’t on the site can still be at risk, as hazardous materials or equipment can easily spill out of the building and onto passersby, putting their lives in danger as well.

As building permit service providers, we know the dangers of construction sites, have made sure team members are OSHA 30 trained; and have some valuable insights into how to ensure the health and safety of your construction crew and improve job performance. Follow these best practices when training your team about on-site safety.

Create a Safety Plan

Construction site safety plans are often overlooked but should be considered a critical component of the construction process. Every worker on-site needs to understand their role in keeping themselves and other workers safe. The plan should identify potential risks and outline the roles of each individual and any person responsible for carrying out those responsibilities. All workers must know where to go if there is an emergency or an injury, as well as how to get help quickly. All equipment also needs to be clearly marked with its location so that anyone coming into contact with it will know what it does.

Review the Safety Plans with All Workers

The next step to a successful safety training program is to review the safety plan with all workers. This will allow them to see what is expected of them and why it is important. It also gives you the opportunity to make sure they are aware of any changes that have been made since their last safety training session. For example, if new equipment was introduced into the work area or a change was made in the work process.

Hold Regular Safety Meetings

Your crew should know about the safety training that is available to them, and you should make it a priority to hold regular safety meetings. These meetings are important because they remind your workers of what they need to do to keep themselves safe on the job. Not only that, but these meetings also allow you to identify potential hazards before they cause an accident.

Inspect the Work Site Regularly

Work site inspections are an important part of your job. It is important to inspect the work site regularly and make necessary repairs. This prevents accidents from happening and can help you avoid any fines that might be incurred due to safety violations.

In Conclusion

As a contractor, you must ensure that your crew has the necessary safety training to operate at a construction site. One of the most important things you can do is ensure that they are aware of all applicable building permits needed for the job. This includes what type of permit to get, where to go to get it, and how long it will take to process. If that sounds overwhelming to you, you can call 1.844.PERMIT.4 for help.
