Construction Safety Pinch Points Weekly Tailgate Topic (Canada) Mobile App
The Construction Safety Pinch Points app is a safety app.
How does it work?
A pinch point is produced when two objects come together and there is a possibility that a person could be caught or injured when coming in contact with that area. Pinch points commonly impact fingers/hands, but can impact any area of the body. Conveyors, gears, loaders, compactors, and other moving equipment are examples of machinery with pinch points. This app reviews health and safety tips for workers to avoid pinch point hazards while working and safety controls to implement during projects.
A weekly safety meeting such as those included in the weekly tailgate topic series are helpful in promoting construction safety in the work place.
