National Safety Week Gives Us a Chance to Feature Our Commitment to Safety Everyday
5/3/2016

Safety is not just a belief for Central South Carpenters and Pile Drivers - or even part of the task list. It's the overriding principle for accomplishing our work. In fact, we regard safety as a business deliverable, right along with cost and scheduling.

This week is National Safety Week, featuring the National Safety Stand-Down to raise awareness about preventing fall hazards in construction. Falls are still by far the leading cause of construction worker fatalities, yet lack of adequate fall protection continues to top the list of OSHA’s most frequently cited violations. In fact, three of the top ten most frequently cited violations in 2014 were in construction, and all involved fall hazards: fall protection (#1), scaffolding (#3), and ladders (#7).

Take a look at what we think about the importance of safety on a job site.
