Building Safer Construction Sites

 Building Safer Construction Sites 

The Morning Blueprint by Construct Connect

Construction sites are dangerous places. Safety hazards lurk around every corner. This is evident by the high rate of occupational fatalities and injuries that occur each year in construction.
