Taking Responsibility for Jobsite Safety

“In terms of effectiveness, safe working conditions at construction jobsites are best achieved when the prime or general contractor assumes his rightful leadership role and takes primary responsibility to (a) establish, (b) coordinate, (c) monitor, and (d) generally manage the overall basic safety program content and structure for all parties and persons at his jobsite,” explains a post on ProjectManagerBlog.com. The author adds that undefined authority among the parties involved related to jobsite safety is not a workable arrangement. Good point.
