Construction workers also are often required to use powerful machinery, climb to great heights or work on roadsides where traffic accidents may occur. Unfortunately, because of the inherent nature of the work, construction workers face a serious risk of injuries on the job.
One of the leading cause of roadside worker injuries and fatalities is contact with construction vehicles and equipment. Workers operating construction equipment are most likely to be injured by collisions or overturning equipment. They might also be caught in equipment while it is left running.
- Contact with equipment or falling object
- Slips and fall
- Over exertion
- General transportation.
Given the dangers of roadside construction work, it’s vital to know how to stay safe while working on a highway. For your safety shoes & PPEs, please visit the Paulvic Safety Store
