Ensure the safety of your staff--and the security of your business. On-the-job safety isn't optional--or simple--any more. This clear, concise, and easy-to-use manual is the only comprehensive guide available to help you develop, install, and maintain an effective safety management system customized to meet your own company's requirements. Its main goal is to help prevent worksite injuries and illnesses on residential and light commercial construction sites, but it will also help avoid needless direct and indirect costs associated with accidents and regulatory infractions. Safety expert Dave Heberle's Construction Safety Manual shows you how to: reduce employee worksite injuries and illnesses; develop supervisors and crew leaders; prepare and deliver effective safety training; gain employee acceptance and participation; employ behavior-based safety techniques; reduce at-risk behaviors and increase safe ones; achieve continuous safety improvements; deal with record-keeping; exceed regulatory standards; work with (instead of "at odds with") OSHA; reduce Worker's Compensation costs; prepare and deal with emergencies; use your safety program to help promote your business. Equally handy on your desk or at your worksite, Construction Safety Manual gives you the bottom-line answers your need on safety and compliance in residential and light commercial construction. It's a time- and money-saver you'll be glad that you own.About the Author:
