As a construction worker, how can I avoid being involved in accidents?

Avoid Being Involved In Accidents

Construction can be a secure occupation if workers have information about the risks and adopt an effective safety and health program.

Here are some simple tips you can follow:

  • do not work if you are feeling sleepy
  • be awake and alert all the time while at the construction site
  • always follow the safety program mandated by the employer
  • if you are unsure about a task that might expose you to great danger, always ask your supervisor
  • pay attention to the emergency drills, so you will know what to do in case of emergency
  • never take a high-risk job if you are not trained for it.
