In construction and earthmoving sites, accidents can happen due to various reasons. Workers are at high risk of accidents like getting hit by objects, getting electrocuted, falling down and more. In order to ensure accidents do not happen, these are some of the reasons workers must be aware of what leads to accidents.
- Materials – Tubes, pipes, and ducts are some of the few materials involved at the worksite that can lead to injuries. Apart from them, smaller items like screws and nails are also known to cause injuries and accidents. In order to avoid getting injured with such materials, it is advised to wear safety items like hard hats, shoes, gloves etc.
- Less Attentive – Injuries and accidents at the worksite can also happen due to the involvement of materials and parts. For example; climbing, walking or trying to reach for something can lead to injuries while working. Therefore, it is recommended to do some form of stretching before dealing with such materials.
- Uneven ground Surface – Uneven surfaces at the worksite are also another reason leading to accidents at the worksite. Therefore, it is recommended to keep some form of signs on the ground for workers to stay safe.
- Operating Heavy Machines – Machines under motion or while being used is another reason leading to accidents or injuries at the worksite. Moreover, an operator using the wrong machine for which he isn’t trained can become fatal.
