Construction Health Safety and Environmental (HSE) Safety Assurance Officers and Inspectors

Since 1970 incidents of death of construction workers has dropped by 67%.  But Construction Safety is more than wearing proper Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).  Safety is a mental and behavioral-based commitment.  In 2013 there were more than 4100 worker fatalities in private industry, approximately 20% were in construction.  Four of the leading causes were falls, being struck by an object, electrocution and being caught in or between hazards.  OSHA refers to these as the “fatal 4” and they accounted for over 57% of the approximately 200 construction worker deaths in 2013.  DJ Moran, PH.D. on workplace safety - (you can be committed to getting construction workers to use PPE and) “have fantastic fall protection, but if people are climbing up 16-ft ladders without wearing it, then it’s not helpful…(Safety) Managers must commit to overseeing the safety process and promoting safety as a key organizational value.” (1)
