About a year ago, I realized that our business was in trouble. Not because we weren't bringing in new clients, but because a lot of our employees were getting hurt on the job. The worker's compensation suits were eating our profits alive, and I knew I had to do something to fix the issue. I decided to start investing more time and energy into improving our safety precautions, and it really seemed to help. We had team meetings about safety and changed our safety gear, and it actually reduced accidents. This blog is all about staying safe around heavy construction equipment and teaching your guys to do the same thing.
