What Is The Role Of A Safety Consultant?The role of a safety consultant in the construction industry is crucial. According to historical data, around 30% of workplace accidents in the construction sector can be attributed to inadequate safety measures. A safety consultant assesses and identifies potential hazards and risks, implementing strategies to mitigate them.

Research shows that companies that prioritize safety have a 20% lower accident rate compared to those that neglect it. Compliance with occupational health and safety regulations is crucial, as penalties for violations can range from $10,000 to $500,000. Furthermore, construction projects can suffer significant financial setbacks due to workers' compensation claims and legal liabilities resulting from accidents. Safety consulting establishes a culture of safety, attracts skilled workers, and safeguards the company's reputation.

Studies indicate that effective safety consulting programs can lead to a 50% decrease in accidents and a 40% decrease in lost workdays. Safety consultants conduct comprehensive risk assessments, identify potential hazards, and implement preventive measures. By recommending appropriate safety protocols, personal protective equipment (PPE), and training programs, they contribute to creating a safer work environment.

Industrial Safety Manager at Houle
I had the pleasure of working alongside Leslee at a major industrial project recently and her help was invaluable. As the COVID-19 pandemic really took hold, with information scarce and varied, and restrictions coming into effect on jobsites with little to no conformity between jobsites, the stress levels on project’s workforce was enormous. Leslee was instrumental in ensuring the craft felt heard with their fears and concerns Her dedication to ensuring the mental well-being of the craft was above and beyond anything I’ve ever seen, and I am looking forward to working with Leslee again in the future.
