When I started working for my dad's construction company, I realized he didn't always pay attention to safety. Workers weren't wearing helmets like they should and people were handling sharp materials without wearing gloves. When I brought the issues to my dad's attention, he told me that we needed to spruce up the safety policies. We evaluated each piece of equipment that we had and tried to identify the main dangers lurking on our job sites. The changes that we made prevented several accidents, which really reduced our overhead costs. Find out more about staying safe around construction equipment by reading these posts.
