Did you know that OSHA conducts random equipment inspections, as well as safety inspections for jobs at random construction companies every year? This is why it is so important to ensure that all of your construction workers are wearing the proper attire and using their fall protection equipment. Steel toe boots and hard hats are a must for construction worker safety.
Because of how dangerous a construction workers job can be, they make more money than most jobs are willing to pay out. In May 2013 the average construction worker hourly wage was around 26.09.
Almost makes the risk worth it, right?
It turns out the construction companies that have high quality safety equipment and train their employees in safety procedures actually have a lot less accidents. Which is why fall arrest training is imperative if you own a construction business.
If for no other reason than to make sure you are covering your bases, in case someone does get hurt on the job.
If each of your construction workers is fulled trained in fall arrest equipment, crane safety and material handling, they will be prepared for whatever they face out on the job.
Thanks to all the training available for construction companies and its employees, the number of fatally injured construction workers has decreased significantly in the United States. In fact, from 2008 to 2013, the number decreased by 200 people on average.
