Hmmm....do I dare say "a little bit of everything"? Safety training and meetings are great...if the workers are engaged and committed to them. The workers need be informed and to buy in to the safety process. A foreman that doesn't tolerate non-compliance (a little different beast than demanding compliance) and being able to get rid of the "bad apples" also play a part. A committed and engaged management who are willing to spend what is needed and not skimp just to maximize profit helps too. You need everyone from the bottom to the top and top to bottom to be involved and to believe in being safe to have a truly safe jobsite.

It is important that people onsite must have the same objective that is to make sure the project is delivered on time within the cost and zero accidents. Motivation is very important thus the more meetings between site personnels.

Along the same line as Mr. Halliwell…..there is no magic trick, just training, enforcement and supervising, as the three main elements of ANY safety program. A well trained and supervised employee is a safe employee and those who don’t, are then subjected to discipline….voila!!! However, the bottom line is always MONEY. Irresponsible employers do not want to invest in training or pay a supervisor to enforce safety regulations. They prefer to shed crocodile tears when a worker die or use reprehensible legal subterfuges to evade their responsibilities.
