Yesterday, I received an infographic on construction safety and the dangers of the workplace. I’ve hesitated to post it here – I never want to use fabricated “fear tactics” – however, this is the reality of the construction industry and, I think, worthy of discussion. Many injuries are preventable with the right workplace mentality, jobsite conditions, and safety communication.
According to the infographic by Maxwell Systems (Now Viewpoint), nearly 20% of all workplace deaths occur within the construction industry. That is just unbelievable. The infographic highlights the importance of fall prevention, and which sectors of the industry carry the most risk.
Please be safety conscious and stay aware of your jobsite conditions!
