Scaffolding Safety Awareness
Falling from height is the most common reason for accidents and death in the construction industry. Knowing how to work safely on scaffolds is a big part of protecting yourself from injury or death. In a Bureau of Labor Statistics study, 72% of workers injured in scaffold accidents attributed the accident either to the planking or support giving way, or to the employee slipping or being struck by a falling object. If your employees work on or around scaffolds and at height, then Fox Valley Safety’s scaffolding safety awareness training should be a high priority.
