OSHA violations on construction sites

As the owner of a construction company, you have a particularly important job to keep your various workplaces safe for all employees. While you may not be able to avoid all possible injuries, you can benefit from protecting your site from the most common OSHA violations, thereby keeping your employees safer on the job. Here at Sacks and Zolonz, we understand the gravity of workplace injury claims, and we want to provide you with fair representation if an accident occurs. However, the best defense is to maintain facilities with the utmost safety standards.

According to Jobsite, almost half of all construction deaths in 2014 resulted from poor scaffolding and falls. Since this is obviously a problematic area, you should pay extra attention to make sure your scaffolds are up to OSHA's regulations. While falls dominate a large majority of injuries on construction sites, other hazards your employees may face include getting stuck between objects, electrical shock and large objects striking them. Across all industries, other sources of workplace injury include poor or hazardous air quality and inadequate hazard communication.

One of the most effective ways to prevent your employees from these common injuries is to ensure that you comply with OSHA's regulations. Beyond your own efforts to keep your construction sites safe, you should regularly train your employees about workplace safety. Taking steps to avoid OSHA violations not only allows you to avoid monetary fines, but it also helps reduce the risk of injury. More information about keeping your workplace safe is available on our web page.
