Workers eat out together, buy lotto tickets together and discuss their weekend activities but do they talk about safety issues that may come up as a result of a new project in a different environment? Construction workers are in new environments all the time. The skill set needed to do the job might be the same but the environments are always new. A pre-construction talk may be just the type of action needed to reduce the chance of workplace injury. Asking your co-worker to let you know when you are taking too many chances or ask them to point out issues that you may not see to avert a serious event.
Conditions are fluid so a flexible safety plan can address the ever-changing environment. I suspect that the conversation about safety will be more productive and rewarding than just rehashing trivial events.
