Hazard communication plans for dangerous chemicals

Every construction team should have a hazard communication plan in place. Communication is the main method of defense against harm from chemical hazards for all construction workers. When your team doesn't realize the danger they're in while dealing with certain chemicals on the job, they aren't adequately protected.

Contract construction workers face higher risks of electrocutions

Many Ohioans are employed in the construction industry, which often involves working with or around electricity. It's important to understand that construction workers who work near or around electricity face heightened risks of suffering electrocutions.

Ladder safety points to consider on construction sites

In Ohio and across America, the number of injuries involving ladders has increased in recent decades. According to OSHA, the majority of these injuries occurred because workers were not given adequate training on how to use ladders safely. For instance, they were not shown how to place the ladder or how to make sure that it was in good working condition before climbing on it.

Training can help prevent ladder falls

Falls involving ladders are one of the most common causes of injuries on construction sites. It has been reported that over 300 people die each year from falls on ladders in the United States and many more suffer from severe injuries. It is believed that many of these falls can be prevented through better training and safety standards.

Safety practices better at union companies, survey says

Construction workers in Ohio may be concerned about safety risks on the job, especially since construction accidents may cause particularly serious injuries and life-changing disabilities. In many cases, people injured in accidents at a construction job may have difficulty returning to work for a long period of time. According to one study, those construction companies that employ at least some union workers are more likely to abide by best practices for safety and go through training on federal OSHA standards.
