Understanding the Full Scope of Safety & Health Risks on Construction Sites

Join OH&S Editor Sydny Shepard to discuss top safety and health risks that plague workers on construction sites around the country and how you can anticipate and prevent them.

A few months ago, OH&S SafetyPod premiered an episode on the construction industry’s “Fatal Four.” That episode was well received by our audience, so I thought it might be interesting to expand on the top risks workers face in the construction industry and how safety professionals and employers can help to prevent incidents on their worksites.

For this episode, we discuss five safety and health risks associated with work on construction sites, these are not to replace the fatal four that we discussed in an earlier episode, but rather to help listeners understand the full scope of risks construction workers face.
