Construction labor shortage exacerbates safety issues

09/21/2018

As a practical matter, a safe jobsite translates to lower costs of doing business. Even just a few injuries can force a contractor's workers' compensation premiums sky high, and, depending on the incident and the state in which it took place, could also leave companies open to third-party claims. These could affect a company's general liability rates, result in loss of business assets and most definitely could leave a contractor with a mountain of legal bills.

But the results of the survey indicate that contractors are interested in implementing plans that are inclusive and forward-thinking rather than just covering their bases in order to save money. Fortunately, there are a multitude of safety training options for all employees, regardless of position.

Available offerings include OSHA-approved 10-hour and 30-hour courses, both online and in the classroom, instructors that will travel to jobsites to teach trade-related safety procedures and schools that will set up training programs tailored to a company's needs. Industry associations and insurance companies are also valuable resources and sometimes offer free or low-cost consultations and training programs for their members/customers.
