Ensuring Safety is a Responsibility in all Industries

We can’t say enough about safety. From employers to employees, safety is an issue that must always be a part of every project, every day. We all know that accidents can accidentally happen but they will happen less often if the proper equipment is used and proper safety procedures are followed.According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, fatal work injuries increased from 4,821 in 2014 to 4,836 in 2015. This total was the highest since 5,214 fatal injuries were reported in 2008. The construction industry saw a 2% rise in 2015, again the highest since 2008. Construction occupations recording their highest numbers of fatalities in years include laborers, carpenters, electricians, and plumbers, pipefitters, and steamfitters.
