While the hazards faced in construction are in some ways similar to those in other industries, there are some unique issues that safety professionals and contractors must consider.
In our ongoing pursuit to educate and inform professionals in the construction industry about safety on the job site and in the office we are hosting Risk Manager and Certified Safety Professional, Brent Gates with Strickler Agency.
As the leader of the risk management program within his company, Gates works with clients to assess their risk management needs and how he can assist them in risk control. Many times small to mid-sized construction companies won’t have a dedicated safety professional on staff so Gates and his company offer this value-added service for their clients to help with compliance and safety assessments.
If clients “don’t know what they don’t know,” Gates is there to help them put safety plans in place, train field workers and office personnel to heighten their safety IQ, and minimize injuries on the job.
Gates will be speaking at this year’s GOSH conference at the Hershey Lodge, on October 31-November 1. The topic is Managing Subcontractor Safety- How General Contractors Can Mitigate Their Risk.
