Enhance Safety at Your Construction Site

Construction sites are fraught with potential hazards. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, construction site injuries, along with transportation and material moving occupations, make up half of all fatal occupational injuries. Those in charge must acknowledge the potential hazards and take precautions to mitigate them.

Here are a few things you can do to lessen the issues at your labor site.

  • Mitigate Common Hazards
  • Improve Access To Safety Equipment
  • Understand Common Injuries
  • Improve Overall Communication

The Most Common Hazards On Construction Sites

Creating safer workplaces starts with understanding the potential hazards. While potential dangers lurk everywhere, construction sites contain more than their fair share of safety hazards, including:

  • Working From Heights
  • Moving Objects
  • Noise
  • Hand Arm Vibrating Syndrome
  • Asbestos
  • Electricity
  • Airborne Fibers & Materials
  • Site Security

Common Job-Related Injuries

Given the extensive list of construction site hazards identified here, it’s not surprising that construction injuries run the gamut, including the following.

  • Falls
  • Falling Debris
  • Electrocutions
  • Explosions & Burns
  • Machinery Accidents
  • Getting Trapped
  • Trend & Ground Collapses
  • Collisions
  • Overexertion

A good risk management system will include preparations in advance for any of these injuries. Ensure your team is ready to treat superficial injuries and conditions. Supply them with the equipment they need to patch and resolve small incidents and mitigate the consequences from more catastrophic accidents before emergency services arrive. When it comes to protecting the lives of your workers, seconds count.

Tips For Safeguarding Your Construction Site

Creating a safe construction site protects your employees, reputation, and bottom line. Following safety protocols can even help improve efficiency thanks to fewer incidence response stops.

Here’s a roundup of tips for maintaining a safe construction site:

  • Implement A Risk Management System
  • Maintain Open Lines Of Communication
  • Engage In Fall Protection & Prevention
  • Provide & Require Protective Gear
  • Secure Equipment For Use
  • Have Clear Operational Procedures
  • Create A Cleaning System & Schedule
  • Establish Clear paths & Walkways
  • Educate Employees About Hazards & Best Practices

Save Critical Time With Medical Rescue Skid Units

Regardless of the cause or type of injury, a fast response can make a life-saving difference. In fact, a mere five-minute delay in response time has been linked with a whopping 46 percent increase in risk of death, according to one study.

One more powerful construction site safety tool is a medical rescue skid unit. In an emergency, response times can be dangerously prolonged due to everything from the trickiness of the terrain to difficulties associated with transporting medical equipment.

Prepare Your Medical Rescue Unit

Equip your unit with the following items.

  • First Aid Kit
  • Automatic External Defibrillators
  • Respiratory Protection
  • Water
