We can't avoid using equipment but what we can do from our side is to take proper safety measures. Having said that safety measure we mean wearing safety kit properly, taking care of small things like if there is mud sticking to one's footwear, they should clean it then and there before something happens that no one wants.

On top of this, whenever a person goes to start constructional work, he/she should wear safety kit including footwear, helmet, gloves, eye glasses, etc. This seems to be something unimportant to many workers but it is something that shouldn't be avoided.

Try to avoid hopping when you're using an equipment. Whenever you need a ladder to climb, use it without any hesitation. Ask for help whenever required. These are some of the small safety tips but could do miracles to save your life.

 

  1. Using Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

Try to understand work and the safety measurements that is directly associated with the work. Once you get it, wear PPE kit properly and tighten it well. Whenever you're about to start a work, at first check whether all related items/tools are available nearby you or not including fire extinguisher, first aid box. Not only safety measurements but also the tools that you will be using while doing your work should be readily available. You should avoid climbing and going down to collect the tools, keep it with yourself or if required ask for other's help without having a second thought. If you are lifting heavy objects then it's very important to get yourself harnessed in order to avoid any mishap. Before starting your work, wear all important safety items like helmet, goggles, gloves, footwear, etc. Always check whether you're relaxed or not after taking safety measures, your clothes should be loose and whatever you're carrying with yourself should not be so tight or it shouldn't hurt your in any manner. Wear breathing mask if required, always carry a water bottle to get rid of restlessness.

  1. Be Careful While Loading and Unloading Equipment

Most of the incident happens because of breaking ropes, slippery of objects or imbalance. Take care of all these things. While loading or unloading things, ask someone to keep an eye on you so that if something happens immediate action can be taken by someone. Before loading or unloading check whether your safety kits and other measures are properly worn or not. If not, fix it then only start the main work of loading and unloading.

 

  1. Take Care While Climbing

While climbing through ladder, you need to check whether ladder is well inclined or not. Don't hurry up to climb the ladder instead try to climb one or two ladder's footsteps if it is not slipping or moving then you can continue climbing or else fix it firstly and then, proceed further.

Similar, while climbing staircases, make sure your feet are dry and you're not using any slippery footwear because it can lead you to be a victim of serious incident.

Although, it could be a reason to injury, you need to be very much careful while giving a start to any such work. What you can do is, if you or someone else is doing any construction related work, alert people to stay away, try to maintain a distance so that if an object falls from a height it fails to affect anyone.
