While construction sites are typically noisy, they can also be dangerous places to work. Construction workers may be injured by falling objects or vehicles, or suffer head injuries due to the use of power tools. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has issued several guidelines for employers and workers to follow in order to keep everyone safe on the job.

Inspect Your Tools

The first step in keeping yourself and your coworkers safe is making sure that all of your tools are in good working order before starting any project. This includes not only sharpening your blades but also checking for any broken parts or other damage that could cause an accident. If there are any safety concerns regarding your tools, contact a professional tool repair shop before using them again.

Wear Protective Gear

Safety gear such as hard hats, goggles, gloves and steel-toed boots should be worn at all times while working on a construction site. OSHA requires that all workers wear protective gear when working around heavy equipment such as cranes, excavators and bulldozers – even if you’re just helping out with a small part of the project! If you’re unsure about whether or not a certain piece of equipment is safe for you to operate, talk with your supervisor before proceeding further.
