Consider Safety when Bidding the Job
Safety should be part of every job, no matter how small. Safety is something every contractor should consider as he prepares his bid. There is a cost to safety, but there is an even greater cost to working without providing for safety on the jobsite. The time to consider safety for the first time on a job is when you are bidding the work. Safety should be considered when putting together your bid as any other aspect of the job. The bigger the job, the greater the potential cost of safety. While the percentage cost of safety may not change significantly based on the size of the project, the actual cost will increase.
