At Buildforce, we aim to cultivate strong and lasting relationships between our contractor partners, our construction tradespeople, and, most importantly, their safety. It is Buildforce's policy to ensure the safety of our workforce and provide a comprehensive and prompt response to any emergency or safety incident. Upon notification of an incident, the injured worker must immediately be provided with the necessary medical attention to be covered under our workers' compensation program.

When an accident or near-miss is reported, it is formally documented and kept on file. Upon injury, it is mandatory to report it to an employee's immediate supervisor and Buildforce as soon as possible and should not exceed 24 hours.

A 10-panel drug screening must also be completed, and proper documentation must be kept for all injury-related visits, including an incident report. We strive to ensure the safety of all workers, and that's why it's imperative that we stay in close communication.

Do you need urgent medical attention? Please coordinate with your point of contact to call 911 first if it is life-threatening.

Return to Work

Buildforce's policy is to return workers to employment at the earliest possible date after injury or illness. We make every effort to have our workers return to transitional positions whenever possible, reducing lost working hours. Upon completion of medical treatment and approval of the transitional position, a job offer must accepted or rejected in the Buildforce app. The offer will include the start date, duration, wages, and assignment location. A Return to Work form must be completed before an employee can begin work and emailed to

Transitional positions are determined according to physical capability, job skills, and the company's business needs; however, the company doesn't guarantee any positions or create specific places to offer placement. An employee who refuses a transitional job and can work could be liable to have the Workers' Compensation Claim denied.

Employees returning to a transitional position must stay within the job's duties or violate any doctor's restrictions. For this reason, the employee must notify their supervisor immediately and provide them with any new medical releases if conditions change.
