Stop Construction Falls Campaign Begins
NIOSH Science Blog has an excellent blog post to begin the falls campaign:
One sunny June morning in 2009, Hector* went to work just as he had every other morning. He climbed to the roof as usual to begin working. But this day was different. In an instant, Hector was hanging over the outside edge of the second story wall of the home the residential construction company he worked for was building.
*Pseudonym to protect the worker’s identity.
