Benefits

Construction contractors that participate in Virginia BUILT will substantially improve safety and health protections for Virginia workers through cooperative efforts to reduce injuries, illnesses and fatal accidents. Virginia BUILT participants will implement safety and health management systems which have consistently demonstrated decreased bottom line costs associated with dramatically reduced injury and illness rates and improved productivity and employee morale and retention.

Reducing private sector employer costs associated with injuries, illnesses and fatal accidents enhances a company’s economic viability and competitiveness, and increases available capital for reinvestment, expansion and new hiring. Costs avoided include workers’ compensation charges, insurance premium increases, property damage, production downtime, employee replacement and retraining, and litigation expenses.

  • A DOLI website page will be dedicated to this partnership with recognition for Tier 1, Tier 2, and Tier 3 participants.
  • Acceptance in the program can be publicized by the participant to enhance its marketplace recognition.
  • Participants will be recognized as industry leaders in construction safety and health.
  • Access to specific targeted training sessions conducted by VOSH Consultative Services.
  • Priority access to VOSH Consultative Services for briefings on new standards, regulations, and emphasis programs.
  • Potentially reduced costs in insurance rates, lost time and less damaged or lost materials resulting in greater profit margin.
  • Improved employee morale and productivity, and the ability to attract the best workers based on the participant’s enhanced reputation in the industry.
  • Use of official logo, icons, devices and/or official program flag, etc.
