Construction Site Safety

by Gary W. Auman, Esq.           

Construction site safety begins with the design of the object of the construction and ends when the owner turns the key to the newly constructed facility and all construction contractors and their employees have vacated the site.  It is important that the architect or design engineer takes into consideration accessibility to safety measures during construction as well as minimizing the necessity for unsafe behavior by contractors and their employees.  Safety must remain in the forefront of every employer’s consciousness while erecting a structure or completing construction as long as it has any employees on the site that can be affected by its performance.  In fact, this extends to safety consciousness as long as there are any employees on the work site that can be affected by any employer’s performance.
