MLC Safety News

MLC Takes Part in the National Safety Stand-Down — To Prevent Falls In Construction
OHSA sponsored program took place the week of May 6-10, 2019

 
Fatalities caused by falls from elevation continue to be a leading cause of death for construction employees, accounting for 366 of the 971 construction fatalities recorded in 2017. It is crucial on all MLC projects that we recognize potential fall hazards and reinforce the importance of fall prevention. During the Stand-Down, MLC’s focused on ladder safety. It is a tool we use most often on our projects and unfortunately one that is often misused on our projects. Additionally, MLC Safety Manager, Stephen Roberts spoke about job site specific fall hazards and prevention.
