Safety Bob's Comprehensive Construction Safety
Concise Length 13 min
Construction work is very dangerous, as nearly 1,000 workers are killed and thousands of others are injured on construction job sites each year. While there have been many safety improvements over the years to control the hazards that contribute to these incidents, new and inexperienced workers still get hurt on the jobsite way too often.
This program stresses the point that these workers must be responsible for their own personal safety. Construction Safety Specialist Bob Synnett discusses the hazards of construction work and what actions construction workers can take to avoid mishaps on the job. Topics include:
- Ladder safety
- Fall protection
- Electrical safety
