- Working at High Heights
Working at height is a common task on construction sites. This is one of the most common causes of fatal injuries on the worksite and workers who work at heights are required to have proper training.
- Slip/Trip Hazards
Slip and trip hazards are quite common on construction sites as there are many obstacles, uneven surfaces, trailing cables and even slippery surfaces.
Exposure to live electrical parts is extremely dangerous. Electrocutions have become a common occurrence on the worksite especially when workers perform electrical tasks that they are not qualified to do.
- Moving Objects
Many moving objects on a construction site, such as supply vehicles and heavy machinery, can be hazardous to workers. It is important for workers to be aware of their surroundings and wear high visibility clothing.
Construction sites are very loud with all of the work and machines running throughout the day. Long exposure to these sounds can be harmful to hearing so it is important for workers to have proper hearing protection.
