There are several times when we come across news on site construction accidents and illnesses caused to workers. Construction sites are always unsafe but with proper precautions, accidents and illness can be prevented. First of all, before any construction is started, the manager or official in charge of the construction site must make sure that all raw materials, equipment and items used are certified and declared safe for use by the law.
Then all necessary construction site safety gear must be used by every person present at the site, including officials who look over the project. Workers must wear safety gear, mask and helmets. The masks are very much necessary as many construction site workers suffer from lung and other respiratory diseases such as asbestos or silicon poisoning due to exposed and continuous inhalation of dust particles containing such materials in powdered form.
