Increase in Sacramento Construction Projects Raises Accident Prevention Awareness

By Kelly Balamuth on March 26, 2010

According to a recent Sacramento Bee story, the $1.08 billion “Big Build” construction project at the Sacramento International Airport is supplying 400 workers with employment. As the construction industry receives a boost from an increase in public projects, job safety and accident prevention awareness are of the utmost importance. The building of a new airport terminal requires adhering to many rules and regulations, and a lot of employee training, all while promoting a safe work environment and creating a secure finished product for public use.

The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) – a government agency working to prevent injury and fatality in the construction field – notes that more than 11 million construction workers perform their job within potentially hazardous conditions. Whether a construction worker is performing a task at great heights, surrounded by heavy machinery or equipment, underground, or near electricity, employers, contractors, sub-contractors, and managers are responsible for adequately training that construction worker, maintaining safety, and enforcing federal and state regulations. The NIOSH also reports that approximately 8% of workers in the United States operate in construction; however, about 22% of U.S. work-related fatalities belong to the construction industry.
