Fall protection video 

In construction, falls from higher levels result in more deaths and injuries than any other cause. Many of these accidents are falls from rooftops.

  • Fall protection is  required for anyone working on roofs or other areas where the distance to the ground or another surface is more than 6 feet.
  • Roofing slide guards are not fall protection.
  • If the fall arrest equipment looks like it need repair, remove it from service and have an expert examine it.
  • Permanent anchorages must support 5,000 pounds for each person attached to the anchorage by a lanyard or a lifeline.

Step ladders Video 

Ladder safety begins with choosing the right ladder. Consider the type of work the ladder will be used for, the weight the ladder must carry, and the condition of the ladder.

  • Always inspect the ladder before every use. Inspect the rails, rungs, feet, and spreaders or rung locks for defects or damage.
  • Do not use a damaged ladder. Mark or tag it “do not use” and request another ladder.
  • Always check your ladder’s duty rating to make sure it will support you and your tool belt.
  •  Place the ladder in an area where all feet have a secure, level footing.
  • Always face the ladder when moving up or down.
  • Always have three points of contact with the ladder to stay balanced.
  • Never stand on the top step or very top of the ladder.
  • Always position the ladder near your work to avoid overreaching.
  • Check to see if there is a safer way to do the work than standing on a ladder.

Water video 

Exposure to extreme heat can result in illness and injury. Working in a hot environment can cause heat stroke, heat exhaustion, heat cramps, or heat rash. In addition, heat increases the risk of injury for workers because of sweaty palms, fogged-up safety glasses, and dizziness. Burns also can occur when a worker comes in contact with a hot surface or steam.

Take frequent breaks in the shade or in air conditioning.

Drink plenty of water – stay hydrated. Avoid alcohol, caffeine, and sugar.

Recognize the signs of heat illnesses in yourself and your co-workers:

  • Signs of heat stroke include
  • confusion
  • slurred speech o seizures
  •  hot, dry skin or profuse sweating o unconsciousness
  • high body temperature
  • Signs of heat exhaustion include
  • headache o nausea
  • dizziness o weakness o irritability
  •  thirst
  • heavy sweating
  • high body temperature o low urine output

If a co-worker has signs of heat exhaustion: Inform your supervisor or all 911. Get the worker to shade and cool them down by removing clothing, wetting with cool water and ice, and fanning. Encourage frequent sips of water.

Liftting materials video  

Workers who handle materials are in rick of injury if not done right. always fallow direction on how to handle materials and never lift more heavy loads or hard to handle materials by. Yourself. aways ask for help 

Eye Protection 

Eye injuries from dust and particles, welding light, and chemicals are common on jobsites. Often workers wear the wrong eye protection or none at all. Although some eye injuries are minor, even a simple scratch from wood, cement, or drywall dust can cause lasting pain. Metal slivers from a grinding wheel, or rebounding nails from routine hammering and carpentry can puncture the eye and lead to vision loss. Welding light can cause “welders’ flash” that burns eyes and surrounding tissue. Nearby workers and bystanders are also at risk. Work-related eye injuries can have life- long consequences.

  • Identify the eye hazards before you start work. 
  • Always wear the correct eye protection for those hazards.
  • Safety glasses help protect against particles and dust. Look for “Z87+” on the frame or lenses as an indicator of impact protection.
  • Use vented goggles for caustic dust, such as cement dust, and non-vented goggles for chemicals.
  • Use face shields with safety glasses or goggles for protection from flying objects or chemical splashes.
  • When welding, use a welding helmet or goggles with the correct lens shade for the job (shade 10–14 for arc welding; 4–8 for gas welding; and 3–6 for torch brazing). Welders’ helpers and bystanders also need UV protection.
  • Take care of your eye protection. Replace it when damaged.
  • If injured, do not rub your eyes. For dust, small particles, or chemicals, use the eyewash station. Rinse with clean water for at least 15 to 20 minutes.
  • For cuts, punctures, and objects in the eyes, seek medical attention; do not wash out your eyes or try to remove objects yourself.
