Construction

Each day, construction workers perform tasks that expose them to serious injury. These include the tools they use and the heights they work from. But that’s not everything. Please see the information below for ways to help keep your employees safe on your construction site.

Fall Prevention

Falls are one of the leading causes of serious injury and death each year in the construction industry. Fall protection devices and gear provide added protection to your employees who are working from heights. For more information on how to protect your employees, please see our section on Fall Prevention.

Ladder Safety

Another leading cause of injury and death in construction is the misuse of ladders. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) report that eight-in-10 construction injuries treated in the nation’s emergency rooms, involve ladders.
