The primary responsibility of safety in construction zones falls on the shoulders of safety officers who are required to make sure construction companies are training their employees in all accident prevention plans. All job sites should have a “Job Safety & Health” poster, along with other required documents displayed in places where they can be easily seen. A safety officer also bears the responsibility for proper record keeping when an accident or injury does occur on the job site.

Although all building employers are provided with a complete set of materials outlining the necessary safety requirements, the final responsibility lies with the assigned safety officer. The officer must inspect the site to identify any hazards that are present, and they must set policies and procedures that will overcome danger from those hazards. If an accident should occur, an investigation will be conducted by the safety officer to discover the cause and determine how it could have been prevented.

Construction workers and all workers who must observe the proper OSHA Occupational Safety and Health Administration) rules must attend training courses conducted by a safety officer. Companies that are required to observe OSHA guidelines regularly hold safety meetings for their employees where the rules are reviewed and any changes noted. Welders and factory work will be especially key moving forward when it comes to overall employment growth.

While a wide variety of industries are required to implement OSHA procedures, workers are likely more in danger of accident or injury than those who work in factories or other industries. No matter who the employer is or the occupation of the employee, a job site injury can be disastrous to both the injured and the employer. If OSHA determines that required safety procedures were not followed once they have reviewed all reports submitted by the safety officer, the employer will be severely penalized with fines and restrictions. Will there be new jobs created in 2017? We will have to wait and see with the new administration.

Construction workers face more potential workplace hazards than people who work in other occupations. There are many potential hazards on work sites, partially due to subcontractors of different trades working on the same project at different times. Since there are likely to be communication gaps between the trades, the general contractor should appoint a safety coordinator who will make sure all the workers are advised of changes that may result in a safety hazard.

Construction employees have always been at risk of suffering severe bodily harm or even death while working on the job. There were sometimes reports of workers falling to their death from high places before OSHA regulations required safety harnesses and other preventative procedures. Thankfully, these incidents are almost unheard of now as a result of the stringent guidelines that employers are now required to follow.
