Safety Equipment and Protective

Properly protecting yourself from serious personal injuries This article is designed to inform every user of tools about the importance of using safety products for any project.

As a construction expert witness, I am often asked about the importance of using safety equipment. I have many years of personal experiences with the proper observance of safety procedures and appropriate safety equipment requirements.

In my professional life as a general building contractor, I have conducted regularly scheduled safety meetings, provided safety equipment to my employees, and trained my workmen on the proper ways to protect themselves while on the job. I have personally monitored my crews to verify that appropriate protective gear is worn and used at all times when needed.

In my personal life, safety and appropriate protective equipment is equally as important. I own, maintain, and use just about every piece of job specific safety equipment that is available. It is my opinion that your home workshop, personal residence, and yard can become just as dangerous as a construction jobsite when work is being performed.

Many homeowners think that work https://eco-zenergy.com/cac-loai-van-an-toan-o-ecozen/ around the house is not the same as work on a construction jobsite. Do-it-yourself television programs make renovations seem simple and easy to accomplish. As a result of these numerous television shows, some homeowners attempt to tackle a renovation project completely unprepared, at least with regard to the usage of safety equipment. I have watched many television programs where the contractors, workmen, and homeowners operate noisy power tools without hearing protection. They tear apart walls and demolish interior partitions without dust masks, gloves, or face protection. While performing hazardous work, these tradesmen do not always address job safety or the potential health hazards from asbestos related products, plaster dust, or mold issues that may exist within the scope of the home renovation work. These television shows can mislead or ignore the fact that the general public may view these projects as safe and easy to accomplish. They potentially create safety concerns that can affect the novice and uninformed viewer.

Serious personal injuries occur frequently to homeowners doing simple weekend yard work, mainly due to the fact that they failed to wear protective garments, eye or hearing protection. The “weekend warrior” risks potential injury by over-reaching while working on undersized or improperly positioned ladders, filling hot tools
