Injuries on the job can lead to a loss of production, low morale, increased premiums, or the difficult task of replacing a key employee. All have costs attached to them. Being proactive on the safety front provides a means to avoid these costs. How is this accomplished? Make safety a priority. Conduct weekly safety toolbox talks, identify hazards on jobsites and in shops through routine inspections, and make sure employee safety and health training is up to date. To assist our members with these safety and health needs our association is the only construction association in Kentucky with a full-time safety professional. What a great resource for our members to have at their disposal. Scott Thomas, AGC Safety Director, can assist your firm with your safety and health needs. Let him make safety a profit center for your firm! As the National AGC of America safety slogan goes “Safety Pays”. It truly does!
