In this modern day and time that we live in, there are now so many buildings and structures being constructed by construction workers however, we never really notice them even if we are passing by the sites where they are working, as we go to our work or our school. In addition to that, we are also oblivious of the fact that this kind of industry is highly dangerous and unpredictable, most especially when the rules and regulations regarding construction safety are not being followed. In certain circumstances, the fatalities that usually happen on construction sites are caused by companies now following the safety regulations and guidelines mandated by the government, not knowing that all they have to do is to do simple and easy on-site construction safety procedures that the workers can perform in order for them to avoid any health related problems, death and even injuries as well.
You should be aware of the fact that thousands of injuries are occurring in the construction industry every single year and several of these cases lead to fatalities. Aside from injuries that lead to fatalities, there also goes the fact that so many construction workers are experiencing permanent health damage that will affect them for the years to come. It has been said that one of the primary reasons why injuries that lead to fatalities exist in construction site is due to the fact that construction workers itself are not taking their safety and also, the safety of others around seriously. You can actually say that there are two sides of the coin regarding this matter: the first one is that lots of workers are not using nor wearing the right and proper clothing and equipments, and; the second scenario is that although they are provided with the right clothing and equipment, they are using or wearing it incorrectly. Albeit the fact that there are already safety regulations mandated by the law to supervise the safety and security of the site and the workers, most of the time, these are not being followed and the most obvious result for this is either, injuries or fatalities.
For those of you out there who are interested on knowing how they can make themselves safe and secure while working on a construction site, you have to begin with the obvious which is the clothing and the equipment you have to use as it is important that you are wearing the right one and that you are using them in the right manner as well. There are three main clothing and equipments that you have to ensure using all the time: the gloves, the safety helmets and the boots. And also, it is stated in the safety rules and regulations that every single workers must wear the right men and women’s clothing since this is very important in keeping their safety during poor conditions.
