Our world is large and vast, with a population that keeps growing and spreading out all the time. Because of this expansion, more and more buildings and homes are being constructed at almost any time to accommodate everyone. In the United States, whether in a large metropolitan area or a small town, you can safely assume that the nearest skyscraper or high rise building is not too far away.
Corporations continue to move to larger cities and erect buildings of greater size in order to conduct business. This need for bigger and better space along with all the tremendous improvements in architecture give business owners a lot to think about when considering where to set up shop. One constant throughout the entire process of moving or building is safety. That is where the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) enters the picture.
The OSHA, a part of the United States Department of Labor, was created by the US Congress in 1970 to ensure safe working conditions for all by setting and enforcing standards and by providing training, outreach, education and assistance. With so much heavy construction and equipment being used on jobsites it is more important than ever to have safety measures in place.
Specific guidelines must be adhered to by workers on a construction site, such as the use of hard hats, and goggles for eye protection. In addition, stringent rules must be followed when using machinery on the job. The equipment generally used on a construction or repair job site is heavy and extremely dangerous if not operated properly. Serious injuries or worse can be the result of improper use of equipment or by operating an unsafe piece of machinery.
