Topics for Construction Site Safety

Workers in the general construction industry face many safety hazards while working on a jobsite. Construction workers are required to stand, bend, stoop and work in confined areas. They may also need to lift and carry heavy objects. All of these physical actions combined with the dangerous tools and equipment used have the potential to cause personal injury. Construction workers can be found in a work zone year round so they must also face harsh weather conditions whether they are walking around the site with rough terrain and building material clutter or working on scaffolding at great heights. SAFETY.CAT.COM™ has been created to help emphasize safe working conditions and mitigate the risk of injuries. This site provides safe construction practices and safety topics, such as Personal Protection Equipment (PPE), to help ensure the jobsite personnel are trained to work in hazardous situations.
