NSC Survey: 58 Percent of Construction Workers Say Safety Takes Back Seat to Productivity
According to a National Safety Council survey, 58 percent of construction workers in America feel that safety takes a back seat to productivity and completing job tasks. Supporting this finding is the sobering fact that the construction industry has the most workplace fatalities each year in the United States.
Is this survey not also applicable in your workplace?
It is quite unfortunate that safety is being relegated to the background in most of our construction sites, instead of being in the driving seat.
Productivity has mostly been placed ahead of safety.
Let us embrace Safety. Safety may not make money for you, but it will definitely save money for you.
