While the construction industry is much safer today than it was 20 years ago, the number of injuries and fatalities in construction is alarmingly high. HCSS partnered earlier this month with contractors across the country for Safety Week 2015 in an effort to raise awareness for construction injuries and make workplaces safer.
HCSS hosted three webinars during Safety Week to give safety managers and construction business owners a roadmap of how to run an effective safety program.
Jim Goss, Chairman of the Government Affairs Committee of the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC) National Safety & Health Committee and an OSHA Training Institute instructor, presented two webinars during the week. The first, "Safety Preplanning: Where Do I Start?" focused on how to properly set up and implement a safety plan tailored to a specific project.
