According to OSHA:
“The purpose of the National Fall Prevention Stand-Down is to raise awareness of preventing fall hazards in construction. Fatalities caused by falls from elevation continue to be a leading cause of death for construction workers, accounting for 291 of the 828 construction fatalities recorded in 2013. Those deaths were preventable. Fall prevention safety standards were among the top 10 most frequently cited OSHA standards, during fiscal year 2014.”
These trip hazards weren’t just responsible for employees ‘tripping,’ they posed a dangerous threat to employees who could trip and fall.
Safety should be upper-most in everyone’s minds everyday. The CordControl System is a great tool to help promote Safety on the job.
