Funny Friday's - OSHA Mission is #SafetyAwareness #SafetyFirst
Its the end of the week, just got paid & it's time to go out on the town and "Raise the Ruff"!
Virtual Reality is a fun and immersive technology, and its benefits are incomparable in the world of construction safety. If you’re a gamer you’ll just take right to it.
Virtual Reality in Construction Safety is customized with training modules and construction workers can perform and practice training techniques they'd usually never come upon until a real-life emergency, at which point they might operate a procedure incorrectly or simply panic.
The Virtual Reality experience creates an illusion of the ‘real’ on-site presence, where workers can use headsets, interactive hand controllers and movement sensors -- ultimately making them feel like they’re really there. Construction workers who participate in more modern and immersive VR materials are more likely to be more confident when arriving on their sites to work.
SILICA Exposure in Construction
Its NOT just DUST its SILICA
The workers are not wearing any respiratory protection and no water is being applied to suppress the dust, putting them at risk of disease
Local Law 196 of 2017 requires certain workers and supervisors to receive safety
training at construction sites that are required to designate a Construction
Superintendent, Site Safety Coordinator or Site Safety Manager. Training will be provided by private course providers approved by the Department. View our schedule to register today at www.oshamissionny.com or call directly at (929) 372-7990.
* All training must be verified before SST cards are provided.
