The construction industry is one that revolves around safety. Without safety this industry fails. Jobsite safety keeps companies afloat longer whether it's financially, physically, or even mentally. This senior project dives into the benefits of mandatory stretching prior to each work day. This study also questions contractors and tests the stretches and their results. These benefits include muscle warm ups, increase of focus, added flexibility, increased range of motion, and even mental awareness. The idea of these morning stretches means more upfront costs for less costs later down the road. These stretches are an extra form of insurance when completed with the proper guidelines. The different GC’s that were tested range from small to large in order to get a feel on the different perspectives and their effectiveness. On average these stretches take 10-15 minutes daily from actual work time, and fit in perfect transition of a toolbox talk or all hands meeting. Safety is something we cannot lack in by any means in the construction industry. With that being said, this information will be not only beneficial to large contractors, but small as well and can be directly applied to their way of business.
