According to OSHA, the Federal Government’s agency charged with safety in the workplace, “…one in five worker deaths last year were in construction.”
In 2013, four categories of hazards accounted for nearly 60% of those deaths. OSHA has dubbed those categories “Construction’s Fatal Four.”
The Fatal Four were:
· Falls — 294 out of 796 total deaths in construction in CY 2013 (36.9%)
· Struck by Object — 82 (10.3%)
· Electrocutions — 71 (8.9%)
· Caught-in/between — 21 (2.6%)
Nifty Tools’ latest product, the CordControl System addresses both the first and the third leading causes of death in the industry; the CordControl System is “Safety Simplified.”
Workplace safety is, of course, vital in helping assure employees are not harmed as they work but, it is also a financial issue. A contractor can save thousands, or even tens of thousands of dollars a year by making sure a safe workplace is provided for valued employees.
Why not look into the financial benefits the CordControl System can provide your firm by helping to reduce injuries; or worse?
