Safety on Construction Sites Protects the Public 

Not only does safety on construction sites protect our workers, but it also keeps the public safe. Construction sites are usually located in busy areas where the general public is coming and going. Inadequate safety protocols can allow objects to fall on innocent bystanders, putting people not even connected to the project at high risk.

Safety Reduces Work-Related Accidents

Not only does construction site safety decrease the risk of injuries to the public, but it also reduces the risk of work-related injuries and accidents. OSHA estimates that nearly a quarter of all work-related fatalities occur in the construction industry, and many more injuries that do not lead to death occur as well. Falls, being struck by an object, electrocution, or being caught in between equipment, are the four most common causes of accidental deaths and other injuries. Having a culture of safety reduces the risk of these types of accidents.
