NEW Safety Training Program starting February 18 presented by METALCON

Is it worth your company’s time and money to invest in preventative safety training? The answer is a resounding YES!

According to the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC), “The charts and summaries in the 2020 Safety Performance Report present the clearest picture yet of the remarkable impact that leading indicator use has on a company’s safety performance: fewer disrupted or lost lives and a safer, more productive jobsite regardless of the size of the company. In fact, companies that engage in leading indicator use are, statistically, considerably safer than their peers. The ABC created the report in 2015 to address the issue of not having sound data to prove the correlation between the use of measures companies can take to keep workers safe on jobsites and the number of incidents that occur.

Another report, Safety Management in the Construction Industry 2020 by Dodge Data and Analytics, reveals the value contractors gain from their investments in safety, the importance of jobsite workers and supervisors to a strong safety management program, top practices used to promote safety and current trends in training and communication about safety.

METALCON is answering these calls for safety training by bringing you a new program that goes beyond traditional OSHA-10 safety training to address situations unique to metal job sites. Introducing METALFOCUS® Safety Program, a new series of 10 one-hour virtual courses designed to:

  • Reduce risk of lost-time accidents and damage to equipment which can lead to lower insurance premiums
  • Lower risk of regulatory fines
  • Improve your company culture and employee morale

Invest in your people, your profitability and your reputation in the metal industry by putting safety first!
