You can never address safety too often; unfortunately, an alarming number of contractors aren’t taking the time to do this. According to recent survey results from law firm Fisher & Phillips, 88 percent of contractors don’t discuss specific safety issues regarding the day’s tasks at pre-shift meetings with their workers.
The survey of more than 100 contractors also found that most contractors agree with OSHA, in that employers should focus on leading indicators and behavioral factors that play a big role in preventing accidents.
