3 Reasons There Is Still a Campaign to Stop Construction Falls

The need to prevent construction-work fall injuries is not new. The problem has been identified, safety measures have been put in place, and education and awareness campaigns have been launched in the past. Yet, government, labor, and management are still working together on aCampaign to Prevent Falls in Construction.

Why Is This Still a Priority?

The simple answer is that preventing falls is still a construction safety priority because falls are still happening and resulting in significant injuries and, worse, fatalities each year. More specifically, preventing construction falls remains a priority because:

  1. Falls are the number-one cause of on-the-job fatalities for construction workers. There are many dangers in construction work. However, falls account for more deaths than any other single cause.
  2. Thrity-seven construction workers died from falls in the first quarter of 2013.
  3. Falls are not simply "accidents" but rather incidents that can be prevented. A fall may not be made on purpose, but safeguards can be put in place to prevent these types of incidents from occurring.

If you have been hurt or have lost a loved one in a construction fall, then you also know the pain and hardship such an accident can impose on a worker and his family.
