Accidents occur on the construction job site. Even non-fatal injuries are a red flag to those charged with creating both a strong culture and climate of safety that something is systemically wrong.

While there has been acknowledgment that safety must be recognized as a top priority with measurable outcomes, companies choosing to apply a “blame, shame and train” approach after an accident occurs, often experience a considerable improvement in recordable accident frequency and severity rates. However, there can be backlash after the initial “call to action.” When safety measurements begin to approach near zero, a transference occurs which often leads to the undermining of the systemic “safety first” construct.
