OSHA released a statement regarding the Decline in Workplace Fatalities in 2017. To read the full statement click here.

I do want to take a moment to discuss one very important part of the statement…

…the loss of even one worker is too many!

Loren Sweatt, Acting Assistant Secretary for the Occupational Safety and Health Administration

Every worker on every one of our projects plays an important and vital role in our success. That worker may or may not be an employee of Jordan Foster Construction. But they are valued the same to us as if they were our employee.

It is not acceptable to permit conditions or activities that create hazardous conditions for any worker on our projects. Jordan Foster Construction strives to create a workplace in which every worker will return home at the end of each shift… a little dirtier, a little more tired, but otherwise in the same condition they came to work that morning.

Hazards exist. But our work does not have to be hazardous! Look out for yourself. Look out for each other. We all strive to go home to our loved ones every night.

For JFC, not only is “the loss of even one worker too many”, but also any injury that creates a situation in which an employee cannot return to work the following day to provide for their family is unacceptable.
