Health and Safety
Jobsite safety is a critical component of the residential construction industry. With over 600 people killed every year by falls on the jobsite, builders are keenly aware of the risks involved in building homes. This is why it is important for every member to have a jobsite safety plan that's reviewed with their employees and subcontractors regularly. And as the controlling contractor on the jobsite, builders are compelled to ensure that the right precautions are taken time and again.
Whether you are updating your safety plan or creating a new one, please review these comprehensive resources available to you. We've created a helpful list of shortcuts to information on an array of safety subjects.
