January 8, 2013

SARASOTA, Fla., Jan. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Stephen A. Estrin & Company, Inc., a leader in the field of construction safety services, understands the importance of the behavioral sciences as a means of creating means tested analysis aimed at identifying the underlying causes of construction industry accidents. Joshua M. Estrin, an associate in the firm, challenges the industry’s historic beliefs regarding safety and accident causation in his recent article Is Safety Culture Just a Fairytale? in “Construction Today” Magazine (pages 44 -45) where he explores whether or not Safety Culture is in fact a reality or simply industry rhetoric.

Under the leadership of CEO Stephen A. Estrin, Joshua M. Estrin analyzes industry trends in an attempt to understand the underlying attitudes and behaviors that lead to catastrophic injuries in an industry known historically for reported cases well above that of the national average and other industries with far greater numbers employed.
