Safety in the Construction Industry

Safety in the Construction Industry covers fall protection, PPE, regulations and best practices.
  • Robotics set to lend construction workers a “helping hand”
    Some robots may do the majority of back-breaking work for construction workers that repeat the same routine for hours. The Hadrian X is a bricklaying robot courtesy Australia's Fastbrick Robotics, which uses its 30-metre metal arm to lay bricks at a rate of 1,000 bricks per hour, compared to a human worker's average of 1,000 a day.
  • Loss prevention reps can help lower construction injuries
    In a finding that could have special significance for smaller construction firms, researchers have determined that insurance loss prevention (LP) representatives – who are often a low or no-cost benefit for insurance policyholders – can help reduce the overall incidence of lost-time injuries.
  • Silica rule delayed for 30 days
    A move last week by the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) will delay enforcement of OSHA’s silica rule for the construction industry for another 30 days – to Oct. 23. The DOL said the delay was necessary because of the “dramatic” reduction in the exposure limit – from 250 to 50 micrograms per cubic meter of air, averaged over an eight-hour shift.
