Dodge Research and Analytics is giving away a free copy of their new report entitled “Building a Safety Culture: Improving Safety and Health Management in the Construction Industry”
“This report establishes a safety culture spectrum of contractors in the U.S. construction industry based on the use of 33 leading indicators of a safety culture. It also examines critical shifts in the use of safety management practices and their impact in the industry since 2012, as well as the key drivers and obstacles for increasing investment in safety management practices and key trends in safety training. The report demonstrates that firms at the high end of the safety culture spectrum use more safety management practices and see stronger business benefits than companies lower in the spectrum.”
Essentially the report finds that companies that invest more time and money on safety have a greater employee retention, have a greater ability to attract new hires, have a greater return on investment and a better project quality.
