Ways employers can encourage workplace safety

In fast-paced businesses, it can be easy for some New Jersey employers to overlook safety, especially if there are numerous project deadlines and other time constraints. However, failing to regularly enforce rules can result in serious or even fatal injuries. Not only can these workplace accidents potentially cause employees to be unable to work for a certain period of time, it can also negatively impact production time.

Proactive safety program could reduce construction fatalities

The number of construction workers killed in job-related accidents in New Jersey and around the country increased by a worrying 26 percent between 2011 and 2015 according to figures from the Center for Construction Research and Training. However, the latest Safety Performance Report from the Associated Builders and Contractors suggests that construction site safety could be increased by as much as 670 percent and reportable safety incidents could be reduced by up to 85 percent if the group's Safety Performance Evaluation Process were adopted industry-wide.
