Online Safety Community

The campaign to stop falls in construction is well underway! In 2010, more than 10,000 construction workers were injured as a result of falling while working from heights. ASSE supports our Arizona members as they push ADOSH to enforce residential fall protection for people working at heights 6 feet and above, as opposed to 15 feet.

That's a tough one! Always hard to enforce in residential because the jobs move ahead so quickly... what has always amazed me is that while thousands worked on the Empire State Building in the 1930's, only 2 employees actually died as a result from a fall... Of course 2 deaths is too many but we've all seen the pictures of their work practices and it's hard to believe that they only lost 2. I know of a local company here in Florida called HUGS http://www.hugsafety.com/ and they have done a remarkable job with their products to help residential roofers make fall protection much easier and affordable for contractors.

This campaign is highly required to stop the falling accidents on construction sites which is not only badly injured the workers but sometimes results in worker's death. For software-based lone worker safety solution, Kindly visit: https://aware360.com/safetyaware/
