Safety… Shmafety

In 2014, there were 4,679 workers killed on the job, 20% of those in construction. That’s almost 90 a week or more than 13 deaths every day!

A lot of people look the other way when it comes to safety. They may think “Well, I already knew that. That’s common sense” or “I’ve been doing this for years. There’s no way it would happen to me.” But, just like driving a car, most accidents happen within seconds of taking focus off of what you are doing.

It’s extremely important to follow all safety rules when you are working. Safety doesn’t take lunch breaks. You don’t want to be like the guys shown below:

Take a look at this infographic we found below about construction-related injuries and deaths in 2012 and how to avoid accidents:
