What’s Next for Jobsite Safety

Let’s talk about jobsite safety for a minute. Interestingly, if you go back 100 years, safety wasn’t the core value on construction projects like it is today. Why did that change? A cultural shift happened.

The Evolution of an Industry

While many pundits have called construction a laggard, one of the things I love about this industry is its ability to adapt to the changing times—and that is certainly the case today. Let me explain.
