Are the foreman on a construction site? Or do you otherwise work in construction? If so, you may want to concern yourself with the various construction safety training courses that are available, as well as the fall arrest equipment that you can have on site to help prevent incidents from occurring.
After all, 20% of all deaths that occur at work involve someone in construction. In the year 2011 alone, there were 4,209 people who died at the job site. And in this particular industry, falling is the most likely reason for a death to occur.
With that in mind, you’ll want to make sure that your workplace has all the necessary fall protection equipment, and that your construction workers go through the proper fall protection training. As of May of last year, construction employees were typically paid $26.09 for each hour. And because you value your workers highly, it makes sense to make sure that they are as safe as possible.
Fortunately, in the years spanning 2008 through 2013, the number of American construction employees who have been killed while at work has typically lowered by about 200 people. This may be to do with the increased use of fall arrest equipment and additional safety training.
