Construction site safety must be made a priority

A construction site is filled with hazards that must be expertly navigated by the men and women who work at them. Even though there are some very serious hazards, there are just as many safety procedures and protocols to help keep these hard workers safe. Unfortunately, not all construction companies require employees to use these safety procedures.

Man killed in construction accident in Queens

Construction sites must be safe spaces for workers who are doing the job. When there are safety violations, workers might think that something is going to happen to them while they are just trying to earn a living. Tragically, these safety violations can sometimes lead to worker deaths.

Construction accidents, rushing and modern work culture

Modern work culture is fairly simple: Time is money. Companies want to accomplish as much as possible in as short of a time as possible. They push their employees to do the same. Productivity is valued, sometimes, over everything else. This can include key things like quality and safety.

Construction's infamous fatal four, with examples

The construction industry is infamous for its accidents, and the so-called "Fatal Four" lead the way year after year. They're so prevalent that the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has special programs just for safety training in these four areas.

How do I prevent accidents at a construction site?

Working on a construction site is inherently dangerous, even for the safest of workers. Employees can take safety into their own hands each time they set foot onto the site in an effort to prevent accidents. So, how can you prevent accidents at your construction site?

Scaffolding Falls Strike Again

Falls remain one of the most common construction site accidents leading to injury or accidental death. Unfortunately, such an accident claimed the life of a 62-year-old construction worker working at the Hudson Yards on June 5. The man fell 10 stories when the 16th floor platform he had been working on gave way. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Ironically, he had been working to build a "cocooning system," which is designed to help prevent falls.
