Better Understanding Hazards, Injuries and Fatalities in the Construction Industry

It’s Construction Safety Week! Listen in as Editor Sydny Shepard gives a brief background on the history of Safety Week, discusses current injury and fatality rates in construction and interviews labor attorney Zachary Perecman about how construction companies can better protect those on-site.

If you stay to the second part of our episode, you’ll hear my interview with Zachary Perecman, an attorney with the Perecman Firm, P. L.L.C specializing in Construction Accidents and Personal Injury. Zach and I have a great conversation about the kinds of incidents found on a construction site, how construction safety managers can better protect workers and what to do if an incident does happen.
