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. Most of the time, the fatalities that occur on construction sites are caused by the negligence of the company and even the workers itself without knowing that they can actually avoid it by implementing simple on-site construction safety procedures which can be performed by the workers so that they can avoid injury, death and other health related problems.
Based on the information that we have gathered regarding this matter at hand, it was stated there that each year, thousands of injuries are happening and few of these injuries lead to fatalities or death. Other than the injuries that lead to the death or fatalities, there are also lots of construction workers that are experiencing health damage that will affect them permanently for the years to come. There are so many reasons why construction fatalities occur and some of these reasons has something to do with the negligence of the workers who are not thinking about their own safety or even the safety of others. 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.
If you want to make sure that you are keeping yourself as safe and as secure as you can while working on a construction site, there are simple and easy ways on how to do so like ensuring that the clothing and equipment you are using are the right ones and guaranteeing that you are wearing and using them the right way 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. You have to bear in mind as well that all workers and should be wearing the right and proper women and men’s clothing, that is if they want to be protected from the dangers of having poor conditions.
