Construction Safety Preventing Occupational Illness Weekly Tailgate Topic (Canada) Mobile App
The Construction Safety Preventing Occupational Illness (Canada) Weekly Tailgate Topic app is used to promote occupational health and safety in the construction industry.
How does it work?
Occupational health and safety for work-related or occupational illness is often confused with injury prevention, however, a safe construction site that promotes workplace safety, also focusing on illness and health safety as a part of a safety program. A healthy worksite will prevent illnesses that can result from work such as respiratory diseases, skin reactions, sun burns, and more. For example, a work-related health hazard can include fumes or particles that can cause respiratory distress. This app helps to generate a discussion around these potential problems, ultimately promoting workplace health and safety.
A weekly safety meeting such as those included in the weekly tailgate topic series are helpful in promoting construction safety in the work place.
