Mobile Fall Protection TrainingIndustrial and construction companies face many of the same threats. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration findings, the top 10 most common safety violations of 2018 are:

  1. Fall Protection  – Construction
  2. Hazard Communication Standards
  3. Scaffolding
  4. Respiratory Protection
  5. Lockout/Tagout Hazardous Energy Control
  6. Ladders

You need to be prepared for this major workplace threat by taking Fall Protection Training classes from TC Risk Management.

Costly Construction Citations and the “Fatal Four”

Construction Crane AccidentThe construction industry as some of the toughest safety standards to satisfy, and with good reason. Accidents at construction sites are more likely to lead to severe injury or death. As a result, OSHA has identified the “Fatal Four” incidents responsible for the most worker deaths:

  1. Falls
  2. Struck by object
  3. Electrocution
  4. Caught in/on/between objects

It’s understandable why construction is such a risky business. Every job is different, and things like weather and crew experience can drastically affect worker safety. An onsite training unit from TC Risk Management can arrive to your worksite and cover safety standards with all your crew members.
