Unsafe behaviors or unsafe decisions are usually contributing factors in accidents that lead to injuries on the job site; in fact, unsafe behaviors, on average, account for 90% of all accidents on a project. Sometimes an unsafe behavior increases the severity of injuries; other times, it is simply a key determinant in causing the incident.

While we at Weifield Group Contracting have a lot of responsibility to control hazards for our employees, the role our employees play is vital. If you understand the hazards of your job and the safe behaviors required of youโ€”and you do your part to helpโ€”many incidents can be avoided.
