Creating A Safety Culture On The Job
Once you’ve taken the step to invest in employee safety programs and prioritize employee safety, you can anticipate seeing workplace injuries decline, productivity increase, and insurance costs cut. But what if your employees are paired on a jobsite with employees from companies that don’t share the same values and fail to utilize the same safety practices? One approach to address this issue, according to Construction Executive, an online newsletter, is to create a site-specific safety program. Start by gathering representatives from each major trade category and assign them to the site safety committee. Make sure this is a diverse group of representatives from foremen level to laborer. This committee can set jobsite safety policies, communicate expectations to the workers onsite, and most importantly, act as an extension of the controlling contractor’s safety staff when monitoring work around the site. Empower this group with the ability to stop unsafe work and enforce safety guidelines, and have them meet regularly to discuss specific safety issues and report on the status of site safety measures. Not only does a site-specific safety committee increase the feeling of ownership in the safety program, it also increases overall “buy in” from all workers. And don’t forget to reward good behavior as much as possible.
