Industrial safety is a major concern for both employee and employer because when it occurs, time is lost, wages are lost, not to mention there are medical and legal ramifications. As a manager or employer, eliminating the “Fatal Four” from your site is key to promoting industrial safety in your company. It has been estimated by OSHA that “elimination of the Fatal Four would save 468 workers’ lives in America every year.”
The Fatal Four:
- Falls (36.9%)
- Struck By Object (10.3%)
- Electrocutions (8.9%)
- Caught in/ Between (2.6%)
Further research proves that most of the work related injuries reported in 2013 were in the construction field, a laborious and dangerous field, more so when the proper industrial safety precautions aren’t in place. One of the 10 most frequently cited OSHA violations was “electrical, wiring methods, components and equipment” a problem easily fixed with cable protectors. These OSHA violations are not only a sign that your site is unsafe but can also become a costly mistake to make.
