Safety and Health Programs for Construction Companies. Establishing a safe and healthful working environment requires every employer and worker in the construction sector to make safety and health a top priority. The entire work force — from the CEO to the most recent hire — must recognize that worker safety and health is central to the mission and key to the profitability and stability of your construction company.

As an employer, you have a duty to protect your workers from injury and illness on the job. Protecting workers also makes good business sense. Accidents, injuries and fatalities wreak havoc on the construction industry each year, causing business disruption and enormous expense. But it is possible to see substantial savings in workers’ compensation and lost workdays when injuries and illnesses decline.
Ensure That Your Company is OSHA CompliantCompliance with OSHA rules is essential. Compliance along with an effective voluntary safety and health program can help reduce your costs associated with injuries and illnesses. An organized, carefully crafted plan that systematically focuses on workplace hazards and employee training is critical. Buy-in from every manager and employee is essential. Everyone has to work at safety and health.
OSHA’s first aid training standards at 29 CFR 1910.151 and 1926.50(c) generally apply throughout the industries that they cover. Other standards which apply to certain specific hazards or industries make employee first aid training mandatory, and reliance on outside emergency responders is not an allowable alternative. For example, see 29 CFR 1910. 266(i)(7) (mandatory first aid training for logging employees), and 29 CFR 1910.269(b) (requiring persons trained in first aid at work locations in the electric power industry).
