It can even be one of your greatest competitive advantages.

Construction companies irrespective of size do their best to adhere to safe work practices on their sites. At a company level, safety measures are implemented across projects and are usually supported and monitored by people on site.
In such a rapidly changing environment, construction sites can become areas where inherent danger can suddenly create situations with the potential to cause harm to workers.
Few industries are as dynamic and complex in nature as a construction site. Changes in personnel, multi-disciplinary teams at differing stages, looming deadlines, extended hours and the weather can have a detrimental effect on the safety of workers on site.
