Construction is a complex risk business. Every company and project has its own set of risks including new processes and technologies, onerous contract obligations, design and professional responsibilities, skilled labor shortage, regulatory issues, and the health and safety of employees to name a few.

Controlling risk is more than just procuring an insurance policy. As extended members of your team, Holmes Murphy Construction develops business risk solutions to significantly impact your bottom line.

On the Cutting Edge of Cutting Risk

While our clients are focused on building for our future, we’re building trust with top-level services including claim advocacy, risk control, safety, contractual risk transfer, practice consulting, subcontractor default insurance (SDI), and more.

With our expertise and focus, Holmes Murphy Construction has unparalleled depth and insights which provide massive value to our fellow construction partners.

Creating business alignment can bring value to you.

Hardhat Health and Worker Wellbeing

The reality in construction is that more workers die by suicide annually than all other occupational fatalities on jobsites, but we can change this fact.

We can re-evaluate our risk mitigation approach and implement worker wellbeing into our overall safety and health strategy to address the physical health, behavioral health, and stressors that workers face each day, focusing on the underlying conditions that impact each one of these areas. That’s where our Hard Hat Health program steps in. Because, what is under the hard hat matters.

The discussion around worker wellbeing on the jobsite is an important one to have. Workplace culture isn’t how your company operates, but how you treat your workers, and more importantly, how your company supports these efforts. To help contractors have a better understanding how to approach a worker wellbeing culture, we’ve created a Construction Wellbeing Model that provides a framework for developing and implementing a tactical strategy.

This integrated model consists of wellbeing tools, strategies, and outcomes. It focuses on efforts that address initiatives and services for the six areas of construction wellbeing: workplace, workforce, worker, worksites, work tasks, and work groups.

A positive, hardworking culture isn’t created overnight. Your culture needs to focus on your workers. You will reap the benefits when your workers see, hear, and feel the commitment your company has invested into worker wellbeing and addresses the critical areas to support their wellbeing challenges.
