Benefits of Safety Meetings in Construction

Have you considered the benefits of holding safety meetings? When was the last time you held one at your construction company? Who do you think should attend these meetings and how often do you think you should hold a safety meeting? Here's a story to set the stage in showing how important safety meetings can be:

A group of ten people stand in a circle. One person whispers to another person a certain construction safety rule that makes it mandatory for a ladder to be within twenty five feet of any worker in a water pipeline trench deeper than five feet. The person who heard the rule then turns and whispers it to the next person and so forth until each person has heard the safety rule. Can you imagine what the final translation of this rule will be at the end of the tenth person? Probably something to the effect of twenty five ladders for every five workers in an excavator. The point is that it can be very easy for workers to get false or misleading information in the field. This is why it is so important to make time routinely to hold safety meetings where all workers can get together and communicate.
