Fall Hazards Not Limited To Construction Industry

The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has taken the time to highlight that their recent campaign to prevent fall injuries, Stop Falls, extends past the construction industry to include other fall-prone industries. As such, OSHA and the Sealant Waterproofing Restoration Institute (SWR) have renewed the vows of their long time partnership. The alliance between the two organizations will develop case studies on OSHA programs, distribute information to workers and employers and develop safety toolboxes.

“Workers in the sealant, waterproofing and restoration industry experience many of the hazards common to the construction industry, particularly fall hazards,” said the OSHA Assistant Secretary of Labor. “By renewing our alliance with SWR Institute, we will continue our outreach to industry employers and workers, and provide information and education important to preventing worker injuries, illnesses and fatalities.”

Workplace injuries are costly to all parties involved. Workers can lose weeks of pay and employers lose a valuable source of labor. Most importantly, a workplace injury puts the wellbeing of the worker’s family in jeopardy.
