Quick Safety Tips for Construction in Honor of National Safety Month

At STC, we believe that safety is the most important part of every job, no matter how big or small. That’s why we are so excited to celebrate National Safety Month this month and continue our dedication to preserving human life every day of the year. Here’s how you can make safety a priority in your workplace to celebrate National Safety Month the right way with STC:

Keep Your Safety Plans Up-to-Date

It’s easy to go months without updating your workplace safety plans, especially during months without incident. When you work in construction, there are tons of dangerous situations and new kinds of incidents can occur without you even realizing they were an issue in the first place. As you take your walks of the job site, it’s important to look for specific hazards and update your safety plans accordingly to keep your entire crew safe.

Let Those with Experience Lead the Way

During your regular safety meetings, you can let those with more experience lead the way by explaining what they have experienced with certain jobs in the past. More likely than not, they have had to learn things the hard way and can pass that knowledge onto the younger members of your crew. You never know what kind of situations may occur, but those with first-hand experience will understand how to better prepare your crew for what to expect.

Celebrate National Safety Month

One of the most important things you can do for your crew is to make safety a top priority in your workplace. When your crew has a safety culture that they can fall back on, they will not only keep themselves safer on the job but also keep those around them safe. Some of the best ways to implement a safety culture in your business are keeping training regular and celebrating the importance of safety all year long. You never know when you’ll need the training most.
