At Inspection Services Inc., we are always looking for innovative ways to advance safety. Our “How To Stay In The Safety Zone” poster hopes to draw attention to current industry statistics and identify “The Fatal Four” construction related casualties. Download this eye-catching poster and hang it in your office, lab, job-site, or even your website to help ensure your team knows “How To Stay In The Safety Zone.”
The data for “How To Stay In The Safety Zone” is based off of the 2013 Bureau of Labor Statistics and OSHA (The Occupational Health and Safety Association) reports.
Other significant statistics from the OSHA study show that:
1. Eliminating the Fatal Four would save 435 American Workers every year.
2. Over the past 12 years, work related fatalities have decreased by around 17%.
3. Most fall related injuries are from roofs, ladders, and scaffolds.
4. 1 in 10 construction workers are injured every year.
5. Workers between 25 and 34 years old are the most likely to be injured in a construction site accident.
In our industry, nothing is more important than safety. Although statistics help us to gain insight on the effectiveness of construction safety, they are only the first part in solving the issue of workplace fatalities. We need to identify WHY fatalities happen, and develop new technologies and strategies to address them. “How To Stay In The Safety Zone” is a visual tool to remind workers how to avoid “The Fatal Four” and empower team members with safety awareness. With rapid technological advancements (ex: tools, equipment, protection gear) it’s an extremely exciting time in the world of construction inspection, but safety knowledge is still one of the most effective means for saving lives.
