Construction sites are a great place to work but adding heavy machines on the jobsite increases the number of work zone hazards and risk for injury. Heavy construction has all the same safety hazards that you would find on a General Construction site except this industry has one added element, the heavy equipment. Each year, workers are crushed by equipment, struck by swinging backhoes, run over or pinned between other equipment and walls. That is why it is important for all jobsite personnel to be properly trained on equipment and jobsite safety. SAFETY.CAT.COM™
provides an extensive list of videos, toolbox talks, construction safety training and many safe construction practices to help lower the risks of injury in the work zone.
