SAFETY COMMITTEE

Safety in construction is one of the most important requirements but it is often neglected on construction sites. Historically, construction workers suffer more fatal and nonfatal injuries than other industries. Appropriate measures should be taken to improve safety at the site and offsite in order to prevent loss of limbs and life, suffering, and damage from preventable accidents. We have discussed here the safety management in the construction industry. Most of the accidents in the construction sector are caused due by a lack of proper education and training regarding safety measures and also because of negligence and ignorance on the part of either the worker or the management.
