Safety-Driven Recruitment: Identifying Safety Champions for Your Construction Team

At Gray & Son, we understand that our most valuable asset is our employees. For this reason, we believe that safety is not just a checkbox for good business but a responsibility we owe to our employees, our clients, and the communities we serve. Below, we discuss why safety is important in the construction industry and how recruiting safety champions is essential to building a quality construction team in Maryland.

The Importance of Safety in Construction

Construction sites are busy environments with heavy machinery, complex processes, and various materials in constant motion. The dynamic nature of the day-to-day leads to a high potential for accidents and injuries. 

In fact, one of the most common hazards for construction workers is falling, an accident that can be easily avoided if safety protocols are strictly followed. We make safety a non-negotiable aspect of every construction project we manage because we want to see our Gray & Son family thrive.

Protecting Our Most Valuable Asset

Employees are the backbone of any successful construction company. Their expertise, dedication, and hard work drive projects to completion. Recognizing that our people are our most valuable asset, Gray & Son places safety at the forefront of everything we do and seeks this quality in the people we bring onto the team.

Safety measures are not just about preventing injuries – they also play a major role in minimizing accidents and associated downtime. An accident-free workplace ensures that projects stay on schedule, avoiding costly delays and disruptions so that we can ultimately maintain efficient project timelines.

Recruiting Safety Champions to Jobs in Construction 

Building a safety-driven construction team starts with recruitment so when it comes to hiring, we seek out individuals who understand the importance of safety and actively champion it. During the interview process, we may ask about a candidate’s experience with safety protocols and their approach to ensuring a safe work environment. 

We may also discuss and evaluate past safety records to gain insight into their commitment to workplace safety. This can include any safety certifications they hold or their involvement in safety initiatives. Once hired, we continuously invest in the professional development of our team by providing regular safety training and updates. 

Are you or someone you know a safety champion interested in building a safer, more secure future, one construction project at a time? Joining our team opens doors to a world of possibilities. Our dedication to excellence, coupled with a supportive work culture, positions you for success in the ever-evolving field of construction.
