How to avoid vehicle and machinery accidents at construction site

If you work at a construction site, it's important to protect yourself. Make sure you always wear your personal protective equipment (PPE) and follow all site safety regulations. When you work around vehicles or machinery on the site, the potential for serious injury is always present. Make sure you follow the tips outlined in this post to help avoid vehicle and machinery accidents at the construction site.

Take it upon yourself to review safety policies at work

When you get to work each day you likely aren't thinking about winding up in the hospital because of an accident. The sad reality is that this can and does happen all too often at workplaces all over Wisconsin. Even if your employer does not hold regular safety meetings, you should take it upon yourself to review safety policies at work so you are familiar with them.

Have you been procrastinating on an update to your will?

Many of us make a will at some point in our adult lives and then always mean to get around to updating it, but never do. It is better to have some form of a valid will than no will at all. But simply leaving a will in a safe or safety deposit box for years can lead to serious complications for your loved ones and beneficiaries when it comes time to disperse your estate.

Learn first aid to protect yourself and others on the job

First aid is an important skill to learn. Many people learn it in school, while others learn it if they join the scouts. Others try to learn first aid on their own by taking a class from a local police or fire department. Either way, it's important for you to learn first aid so you can protect yourself and others when working at an industrial job site.

Preventing falls while working outside on the job

If your job requires you to work outdoors a lot during the winter months in Wisconsin, you need to protect yourself from various fall hazards. These hazards may be easily seen or very difficult to find. If you come across any hazards you need to either fix them yourself or report them to your supervisor. Here are some tips for preventing falls while working outside on the job.

Inspecting your personal protective equipment daily

Working in the construction industry can be rewarding and dangerous all at the same time. Why? You feel a sense of worth because you are building things with your own hands. But you might also feel unsafe because of the working conditions or the natural danger of the job site. One way to remain safe is by wearing personal protective equipment (PPE) at all times while on the job in Saint Croix. Here's why you should inspect your PPE daily.
