As a veteran painting business owner, Tim Flood thought he had his company's safety protocol in check. However, he soon had to reexamine and overhaul his safety procedures when a preventable ladder accident caused serious injury and ultimately death to one of his crew members.
Tim talks about the safety audit of his company after the incident, working with OSHA, and he shares what new methods he and his leadership has implemented. He is now a vocal advocate about safety and stresses it needs to be part of employee culture from day one.
Federated Insurance not only offers coverage for painting contractors, but they have provided safety templates for PCA Members, which will help you develop your safety program.
