Reducing Construction Site Accidents
An in-depth look at collision mitigation systems and how they reduce struck-by accidents from blind zones on construction sites
• 09/30/2016 • Edit
Dear Construction Professional,
Construction site accidents are costly and can bring an entire operation to a halt. Unfortunately, these accidents are also on the rise. The US Department of Labor reported that 4,386 work fatalities were investigated in 2014, 20.5% of which were in construction. Being struck by an object was one of the leading causes of construction worker deaths. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, approximately 75% of struck-by fatalities involved heavy equipment such as trucks and bulldozers.
Our friends at Preco Electronics, provided this eBook to educate construction firms about construction site accidents and ways to prevent them in order to keep your job sites safe.
Why do construction accidents happen? One key reason is the blind zone inherent in heavy equipment. Equipment operators might not see a worker in their blind spot, or they may assume that their machine’s path of travel is clear. Workers on foot might not hear a vehicle’s backing alarm over the surrounding noise, or they may ignore it because they are focused on their own tasks.
Find out why construction companies are implementing collision mitigation systems.
When you read Reducing Construction Site Accidents, you will:
- Discover the surprising average cost of construction vehicle accidents
- Learn how to determine the real cost of a blind zone accident
- Find out how construction accidents affect intangibles like attitudes and opinions
- Understand how safety technologies at work mitigate struck-by accidents
Just like the best time to plant an oak tree is 20 years ago and the second best time is today, now is the best time to take action and learn about COLLISION MITIGATION SYSTEMS.
Have you ever wondered:
- What is the best way to employ spotters to prevent struck-by blind zone accidents?
- How to turn passive systems into active safety solutions?
- How to integrate radar and visual sensor systems?
- How to achieve the best of both worlds by integrating active and passive safety solutions?
- How the future of collision mitigation will incorporate active machine control?
