Damage Prevention Manangers can offer suggestions and mediate discussions to help you avoid potential injuries and costly delays. If it has been a while since your crews and other employees have had a safety presentation, toolbox talk or construction site meeting, consider scheduling one prior to an upcoming job to assist with planning and conducting your work. This is an excellent opportunity to learn about the best practices in the industry.
