We help many firms, construction included, avoid these injuries and fines. We are not perfect either, but we have reduced claims in many firms and are proud to say we know we can help you as well. Firms are learning the hard way and that can be avoided for the most part. There are programs to not only help firms small-large, but there are ways to receive some money back.
Are you and your employees aware of the accountabilities, the legal compliance, training and certification? Regardless if you have 1 or 1,000,000 employees, you must be compliant. We know, “I’m a small home based company”, or “this has no effect on me or my company, I am just one person”. WRONG! Safety and compliance has an effect on every company.
