About a month ago, one of my employees was struck by an overhead boom. He was rushed to the hospital, where fortunately, he was treated for minor injuries. However, that experience taught me an important lesson. My employees needed to learn better safety skills. Afterwards, we started holding weekly safety meetings, and my employees learned a lot. It was incredible to see the number of accidents decline, and employee morale improve. This blog is all about teaching other business owners to improve their safety skills when using heavy construction equipment. You never know, you could save one of your worker's lives.
