On OSHA’s website you can find a “Quick Card” listing the top four construction hazards, and ways to protect against them. We found OSHA’s list to be a great tool for construction workers, so we decided to pass it on. Here’s the list, along with some extra resources we’ve added to help keep you safe on the job.

Falls

  • Wear and use personal fall arrest equipment.
  • Install and maintain perimeter protection.
  • Cover and secure floor openings and label floor opening covers.
  • Use ladders and scaffolds safely.
