How can construction site falls be avoided?

On a daily basis, construction workers face many different threats in the workplace. In Minnesota, and across the U.S., some may be hurt as a result of exposure to harmful chemicals or electrical shock, while others may sustain an injury due to falling objects and deficient machinery. However, falling is particularly problematic and responsible for many of the serious injuries and fatalities that take place on construction sites. For construction workers and employers in the industry, understanding how falls can be prevented is critical.

Promoting safe driving practices in the workplace

Each day, thousands of Minnesota workers travel major thoroughfares in designated company vehicles to get from one destination to the next. While operating a company vehicle can provide a plethora of benefits, conveniences and flexibility for workers and employers alike, it also presents risks associated with potential car accidents.

Avoid workplace injuries by knowing potential dangers

While having a job is essential for the livelihood and satisfaction of many Minnesota residents, for some it can be significantly more dangerous than for others. Factors influencing a person’s risk level can include anything from industry type, to environmental exposure to types of equipment used.

A closer look at common construction site accidents

Construction workers face unique risks in an industry that requires heavy machinery and powerful tools along with exposure to heights and other dangers, to get a job done. While many Minnesota construction companies do their best to adhere to designated safety protocols and procedures, the chance of an on-site accident is always present.
