A Catalyst for Better Construction Safety Results
To help decrease or even avoid the risks and costs associated with construction project safety, Marsh Risk Consulting’s (MRC) Construction Safety 360 strategically combines an objective safety program assessment and an employee perception survey, providing clients with a customized solution that can produce a lasting and effective safety and loss control program. By using this approach, construction project owners can enhance current safety programs, reduce safety incidents, lower direct and indirect safety-related costs, improve profit margins, better maintain construction schedules, and meet or surpass regulators’ or customers’ safety performance requirements.
Who It's For

- Control financial losses associated with work-related accidents, injuries, and/ or illnesses.
- Improve their workers’ compensation experience modification rate.
- Establish and maintain their safety reputation by meeting and/or exceeding client demands for safety.

What You Get

MRC’s experts develop targeted Construction Safety 360 solutions to meet our clients’ safety needs, which can be applied on a customized basis to contractors and construction companies of any size.
Our team collaborates with clients to develop solutions and strategies, which allows for seamless and successful execution. This means fewer operational disruptions and increased employee engagement. Construction Safety 360 includes a casualty risk analysis and an employee perception survey.
The casualty risk analysis evaluates the existence and effectiveness of the essential components of an organization’s construction safety programs. It is a thorough evaluation of safety programs and processes.
The other critical aspect of Construction Safety 360 is the employee perception survey. This survey captures candid feedback through anonymous dialogue with managers, field supervisors, and front-line workers, as their perspectives are the litmus test of safety program effectiveness.
