The most important assets on any jobsite are the people, which is why safety always needs to be an integral part of your day-to-day operations. This is especially the case for anyone involved in the construction industry.

Although the sector comprises only about 7% of provincial employment, it’s where roughly 30% of all work-related fatalities occur in Ontario.

For instance, working at height has many unique risks, but height safety is not just about the risk of working at height. Objects dropped from height pose a unique risk, potentially injuring workers and others at a worksite. Dropped objects can also result in equipment damage and tool loss. These hazards, however, are often overlooked when considering workplace safety. Remember, fall protection is about protecting you, but dropped object prevention is about protecting those around you.

Knowing where to start can be tough. At Fastening House, we work with safety departments to help identify need and standardize safety equipment offerings to ensure workers have everything they need to protect themselves and those around them. Want to learn more? Contact us to get started.
