Master Jugglers

"Noisy, dusty, confusing traffic'patterns, flaring tempers, constandy changing weather conditions, temporary workers and/or bilingual workers, subcontractors milling around like worker bees traffic-did I mention stress? There are few worksites as continuously challenging as a construction site."

Hazards are ever present on any construction site: inappropriate walking/working surfaces, poor PPE selection and use (or none used at all), ineffective housekeeping, shoddy material storage and haphazard exit paths, hit-and-miss training elements, poor security, and light and weather extremes.

As safety professionals, we have seen many different types of construction sites: those with interest in occupational safety and those lacking woefully. Management's interest in safety and health and a keen eye on the project will maintain a neat, clean site and a well-trained and managed workforce.
