Personal Protective Equipment for Construction Workers

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for Construction Workers

There are so many potential hazards at a construction site, and personal protective equipment (PPE) is one of the workers’ primary lines of defense. Each item is designed to minimize exposure to certain risks of injury or illness, as well as the damage caused by those hazards in the event of a mishap.

Every individual construction site and job duty should be evaluated for specific and unique dangers, and appropriate personal protective equipment required. Some common classes of hazards at construction sites with risks that can be mitigated with appropriated PPE include electrical, fall, chemical, harmful dust, struck-by, penetration, caught-in and caught-between, rollover, and heat. It’s important that workers use PPE that is properly fitted.

Why PPE protection required for Construction Workers?

• Head Protection (Hard Hats): These are essential at most construction sites. They protect against head injuries related to swinging or falling objects, striking the head against something, or accidental head contact with an electrical hazard. Hard hats should be inspected for dents, cracks, and other damage prior to each use; damaged ones should never be worn.

• Foot Protection (Safety Footwear): This often refers to steel-toe boots. Work boots should be worn on site that protect against crushed toes due to heavy or falling equipment or materials. They also need puncture-resistant, nonslip soles, as work surfaces can have sharp objects on them, and slips are a major hazard at the job site.

Construction site Safety tips for working around Heavy Equipments

Every construction site includes at least a few pieces of heavy equipment. While this machinery is essential to productivity on projects, it’s also one of the main sources of danger to workers in an around the equipment. Below are some essential steps for keeping everyone on the job site safe around construction machinery. Management has a responsibility to instate policies that promote Worker Safety and provide appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for every crew member at every job site.

• People should only operate machinery they’ve been fully trained to use.
• Always completely power down heavy equipment when ceasing operations, release pressure from hydraulic controls, and engage parking brakes.
• Never exceed payload or lift capacities.
• Only load and unload equipment on level ground to prevent tipping, rollovers, material spills, and other risks.
• Always wear appropriate PPE on the job site.
• Wear high-visibility Safety Vests when working around heavy equipments.

Top Tips for Fall Prevention at Construction Sites

Falls are responsible for around 300 construction worker deaths annually, or almost one-third of all such fatalities, according to the OSHA. This makes falls the leading cause of death at construction sites. Falls also cause countless additional injuries. Workers 6 feet or more above ground or lower levels are considered at high risk for death and serious injury. However, any fall can be dangerous. Below are some important steps for preventing job site falls and their resulting injuries and deaths.

Safety Tips to Reduce Falls at Job Sites.
• Train workers to correctly use all safety equipment, to recognize and address potential fall hazards.
• Inspect all safety equipment prior to use; replace or properly repair damaged equipment never use it.
• Use grab line systems, Guardrails, Safety Nets, or personal Fall Arrests to keep workers safe at heights.
• Develop an emergency fall response plan for workers who fall, including those who become stuck suspended from a harness or other safety equipment; ensure all foremen, supervisors, and crew are well acquainted with the plan.
