OSHA’s Top 10: Working Safely at Heights with Scaffolding
OSHA’s Top 10: Working Safely at Heights with Scaffolding
In construction, falls are the leading cause of injury and death. Did you know that if you are working in construction, and are working more than six feet above the ground or a lower level, OSHA standards require some kind of fall protection. Fall protection falls into two categories: • fall prevention – as the name implies, these are systems to keep workers from falling. Scaffolding is a fall prevention system. • fall arrest – in situations where you can’t be sure to prevent worker falls, these systems make sure that if a worker falls, they won’t fall far or be injured or killed. Employers at workplaces with fall hazards are required to have a fall protection plan in place.
OSHA’s Top 10: Lockout / Tagout
OSHA’s Top 10: Lockout / Tagout
Use LOTO so safety isn’t a “lotto”. If you need to repair or service a piece of equipment, you need to make sure that it won’t start up or move unexpectedly. Don’t just turn it off. Someone might turn it back on while you’re working on it. You could be injured - or worse. Lock out and tag out (LOTO) equipment before you or anyone else repairs or services equipment or machinery.

OSHA’s Top 10: Respiratory Protection
Take a deep breath. Feel that air in your lungs. Now imagine doing that in a toxic environment. That would be crazy, right? Right! You could get sick or even die. That’s why workers need respiratory protection when their work environment exposes them to toxic substances such as chemical fumes and vapours. What if you couldn’t catch that breath because you caught COVID-19 at work? A different type of respiratory protection can help prevent this from happening.

Did you know that over 18% of workers in the US use ladders in their work? Even if you don’t use one at work, you’ve probably used one at home. You may have heard the expression, “it’s as easy as falling off a ladder”. Unfortunately, lots of people do it – fall off, that is. Each year in the U.S., more than 500,000 people are treated and about 300 people die from ladder-related injuries.

OSHA's Top 10: Eye Protection
OSHA's Top 10: Eye Protection
They say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. But what if you couldn’t see the beauty around you anymore? Sometimes we lose our sense of sight for reasons we can’t prevent, but why take a chance on losing your sight in the workplace? Sadly, a lot of people do. Each year, tens of thousands of people are blinded and hundreds of thousands receive eye injuries in the workplace. The vast majority of those injuries could be prevented by the use of proper protective eyewear.
