Rob Nanni, of North Texas Crane, has been working closely with Equify to achieve this goal as part of an overall risk reduction strategy. The line of work North Texas Crane takes part in can be dangerous given the conditions and equipment they use on their projects, so being prepared is the only sure way to protect himself, his team and his business. Rob said, in regards to the program and relationship with Equify;
“It’s essentially creating a safer environment for our employees and customers. The program has allowed us to be proactive rather than reactive in our maintenance, safety and training programs. Just by appointing a safety director, which was our number one goal we set this year, we feel we are so far ahead of the game, in a business that is growing so fast. Equify has been a great partner to us in this. Just like their logo says, they are helping make our business stronger.”
The National Safety Council has provided resources showing the increased need for business to employ safety and health incentive programs. Research shows that as early as 2010 employers were paying nearly $1 billion per week for direct workers compensation alone, given the progression of our economy, digital resources and technological advancements we can only assume the number has continued to rise. In response, the National Safety Council has devoted time, education and support for the investment of safety and health programs for business has proved to actually increased financial performance and overall worker productivity.
