OSHA and the construction industry
The latest OSHA statistics state, one in five worker deaths occur in the construction industry. This high death rate can be attributed to a range of factors including the 'fatal four,' which includes falls, being struck by an object, electrocutions and getting caught in machinery.
Becoming and remaining OSHA compliant helps eliminate the fatal four and saves over 450 workers' lives every year. Ensure your workers are trained, and given refreshers regularly to create the safest work environment possible. OSHA compliance begins with employee development and training.
