In the rapidly growing construction industry, safety is paramount. With the workforce projected to surge by 872,000 jobs by 2025, it’s crucial to address the unique challenges posed by new, returning, and older workers on construction sites. Our insightful infographic delves into these construction worker safety issues, shedding light on the risks and offering practical solutions to ensure the well-being of every worker.
Did you know that despite the enticing incentives offered to attract new, returning, and retired workers, the influx of diverse labor sources also brings an increased risk of accidents? This infographic provides eye-opening statistics: young workers, comprising just 8% of the workforce, account for a staggering 23% of construction accidents. Additionally, within the first year of employment, 60% of construction worker injuries occur. Even returning workers aren’t exempt, with 12% facing reinjury within a year. For older workers, the on-the-job death factors in at 80% higher for those aged 55 and above compared to their younger counterparts.
However, with technology comes hope. A digital field inspection program tackles the challenges of construction worker safety. New workers, equipped with their tech-savviness, can access comprehensive safety guides, step-by-step SOPs, reference photos, and more right on their smartphones or tablets. For returning workers, the platform encourages the reporting of hazards, creating a community effort to prevent recurring incidents. Even older workers can benefit, from user-friendly digital processes that provide essential safety guidance.
However, the benefits extend beyond individual workers. With real-time dashboards, safety inspections, and issue resolutions are meticulously tracked. The system scales effortlessly to accommodate the influx of new workers and projects. A digital repository of SOPs, instructions, and reference materials acts as a field bible for enhanced safety. Reports generated on-site streamline workflows and enhance performance. The incorporation of geolocation intelligence further empowers your team.
