The Lowdown: May is National Safety Stand-Down Month

By | April 3, 2019

What’s coming up for your construction clients? The 6th annual National Safety Stand-Down takes place May 6-10, 2019. First initiated by OSHA in 2014, the week encourages construction companies of all sizes to participate in ‘stand-downs’ – a specific time to stop site work and focus on a safety issue or hazard as an entire organization. The campaign has adopted fall hazards as its focus for this week long event. Learn more here and consider reaching out to your construction clients about participating.

In anticipation of making that connection, visit Research & Trends to reacquaint yourself with the latest information on construction liability. Currently, our sponsor McGowan Program Administrators, is offering an overview of contractor environmental risks to make sure your clients have adequate coverage for:

  • Environmental Impairment Liability
  • Product Pollution Liability
  • Non-Owned Disposal Site Coverage
  • Transportation Pollution Liability

Download, Why You Need Contractor Pollution Liability Coverage, for a comprehensive guide you can share with your clients.

In addition, Research & Trends has just hosted a new report by Chubb, focused on the risks surrounding the development of residential communities. This report, A Start-To-Finish Overview of Risks in Building Master Planned Communities, focuses on the risks that can severely impact the completion and budget of a building project.

Finally, as this post began with a discussion of safety, consider sharing the Associated Builders & Contractors 2018 Safety Performance Report, with your clients as part of your Stand-Down discussion. This report illustrates the positive correlation between prescribed safety measures and reduced incidents of injury on the job.

It’s always easier to make a sales connection when there is something new to share. We strive to keep new reports coming to help you do just that. For the latest reports, join our Research & Trends e-newsletter and receive updates directly to your inbox!
