Stop Construction Site Injuries

The need for certified safety professionals exists in every profession. From the office to the oil rig, continued improvement of safety management systems play an important role in every workplace, and Performance Based Safety, LLC is here to help.

Construction site injuries

The construction industry reports more workplace injuries than any other industry in the United States. Construction companies work as contractors, which put these workers in different environments, and large companies can have several crews working at several locations at any time.

The most common construction site injuries include:

  • Slips and falls (from roofs, scaffolding, unfinished stairs)
  • Falling object injuries
  • Workers caught between or inside collapsed trenches, or pinned by equipment or falling objects
  • Power tool injuries (electrocution, etc.)
  • Lifting loads improperly

Maintaining ongoing safety management systems for an industry like construction takes a lot of time and training. Managers, foremen, and owners do not have the training or time to develop ongoing safety management systems that can keep up with new guidelines. Outsourcing safety programs and training workshops ready EHS professionals for exams meeting the standards of the Board of Certified Safety Professionals. Our programs and on-site training work more effectively than trying to start and maintain a program internally.
