One of the most important aspects of any construction company is jobsite safety. This is very important for the protection of company employees and protection of company clients. There are many issues on a construction site that need to be addressed at all times. These include things such as electrical power cords, electrical tools, ladders, scaffolds and planks, floor and roof openings, etc.
