MARCOM's course on "Safety Orientation in Construction Environments" contains information employees need to create and maintain a safe and healthy workplace. When the day begins… there is always lots of work to do… orders to fill, quotas to meet and those ever-present deadlines to hit. But if we rush and aren’t careful we could very well cause an accident, damage valuable property, or even suffer a serious injury. That's where the phrase "Safety First" comes in. It means that working safely is the top priority and we need to learn to take precautions to protect ourselves from hazards and prevent accidents.
