A well-managed workplace safety program can be a benefit to construction firms in countless ways—lower insurance rates, healthy employees, and increased productivity. However, it can be especially difficult for small- and medium-sized contractors with limited resources to implement an effective program.
As part of OSHA’s increased outreach efforts, the department is offering a free online presentation/webinar to raise awareness and understanding on the value of having an effective safety and health program to prevent work-related injuries and illnesses.
The one-hour webinar will be available for viewing from August 13 to 19 and will cover:
- The importance of management leadership, education, and training in safety program development.
- How to evaluate and improve a safety program.

SMACNA and the Sheet Metal Occupational Health Institute Trust (SMOHIT) also offer resources especially for small- and medium-sized contractors. They include the SMACNA Guide to Policies, Procedures, and Written Programs and SMOHIT’s Safety Orientation IV Return on Investment video.
