Safety in the construction industry and on construction sites is encompassed under construction safety. The sole purpose of construction safety is to ensure that a construction site or the industry does not constitute an immediate hazard to the public or workers on a construction site and ensure that the completed project complies with required safety requirements.
Vermont is a "state-plan" state, which means it has its occupational safety and health regulatory program recognized by the federal government. State legislation oversees occupational safety and health in public and private sector businesses except for domestic work and mines. The state has adopted the federal safety and health standards by reference and more stringent state standards for permissible exposure limits (PELs) for air pollutants and line-worker safety. State workers' compensation regulations require high-risk firms to develop an accident prevention program (APP).
Safety in construction is not restricted to protecting workers from danger or death. Additionally, it protects the community and the environment. Construction sites are a significant source of air pollution, emitting up to 2,000 pounds of hazardous compounds daily. Multiple factors contribute to construction site accidents and injuries. There are a variety of tasks on a construction site, and each presents its unique dangers if not performed safely.
Therefore, when working on a construction site in Vermont, the following measures must be observed.
- Always wear your protective equipment.
- Do not initiate employment before receiving an induction.
- Maintain a neat site.
- Do not place yourself or others in jeopardy.
- Observe all safety signs and protocols.
- Never work in risky environments.
- Report faults and close calls.
- Never tamper with the equipment.
