How Onsite Clinics Increase Health and Safety for Construction Employees

December 21, 2020
Chad Henriksen - Construction Executive

Construction jobs come and go as fast as the seasons, but chronic pain and potential damages from the job follow employees much longer. As construction sites look to maintain workplace health and safety, they frequently offer affordable and gracious health and medical packages, but oftentimes fall short of providing real-time nearby assistance.

The construction workplace can be dangerous. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics ranks construction as the sixth most dangerous occupation for workers based on the numbers of non-fatal injuries. According to a recent survey, these injuries cost the industry nearly $190 million each week. Overexertion involving outside sources, such as lifting, pushing and carrying items make up for nearly 17% of these costs.
