Safety Awareness is the Key to Safer Job Sites
The Construction industry accounted for 3 out of the top 10 most violated OSHA standards in 2016. Fall Protection, Scaffolding, and Ladder violations were the most frequently violated OSHA standards from the Construction industry and all were easily preventable if the proper safety precautions had been taken.
The biggest factor that leads to violations in construction is the lack of proper safety education and supervision on project sites. The good thing is that these lapses in safety can be easily corrected with the implementation of tools like GoCanvas. The GoCanvas platform gives every crew member easy and instant access to the critical site safety forms that they need in order to prevent a major accident from occurring. It also allows for safety supervisors to quickly collect and share data from the field, back to the office, in real-time so that in-depth reporting can occur. This type of reporting is critical in enabling proactive safety decisions to be made, which is the best way to prevent an accident from happening in the first place.
