Absolutely. I work for one of the largest CM companies in the world. There is no question that without the oversight that is provided in the field and in our contracts some employers would allow their employees to work in extremely dangerous conditions (Most would not I hope). The GC, CM, or Prime sets the tone on the jobsite, good or bad. If you are the drywall contractor and have to deal with an unsafe electrician (or whoever) who refuses to correct a hazard, there needs to be someone to call that has the authority to fix the issue. The only alternatives are to 1. Call OSHA 2. Pull off the job 3. Make your people endure unsafe conditions. Any of those would be unacceptable to most. So as much as we hate being held responsible for other people, it really is the only way I see to get the job done.
