Safety Incidents are actually happening day in and day out on any job site across the city. It doesn’t just include people falling off ladders or getting electrocuted.
Safety encompasses a whole range of incidents that are occurring day in and day out. Driving managers and supervisors almost around the bend and costing companies millions of dollars. Probably Billions due to lack of care in these areas.
Take another look at the above and see if you can spot the safety precautions taken in these images.

So the next time you review your risk assessment at the beginning of the project, ensure that you drop these hazards and control measures into your SWMS.
5 minutes of care can safe thousands in financial loss, not to mention the embarrassment and heartache.
It really is a terrible feeling to destroy a good job due to stupid mistakes. Make sure that you also have you safety in.
