Construction accidents are quite common. They are also usually very devastating. The sad thing is most of them are also preventable. Accidents can often be attributed to someone not paying attention or someone ignoring safety rules. Of all the people of a construction site, it is the supervisor who probably has the most control over the situations that lead to accidents.
With this in mind, it is essential that construction supervisors take a bit of responsibility for the safety of their crews. According to the International Association of Drilling Contractors, when those in charge pay attention and stay on top of site safety, it can go a long way towards making everyone safer and preventing accidents.
