Construction hazards are heavily dependent on the type of construction work that is being carried out. For example, working on scaffolding presents entirely different hazards to working with asbestos. Safety awareness is important when working on different pieces of equipment and surfaces, such as up on scaffolding, ladders, and roofs.
Its essential that anyone; workers & supervisors, who works at height in any place, including a place at or below ground level should undertake training to prove that they are competent and safe in their work. Ensuring workers safety on construction sites starts with a strong hazard assessment & management leadership.
Scaffolding – When installed correctly, these platforms provide a comfortable working surface, avoiding the loss of balance and overreaching, while allowing employees to place tools and materials that would otherwise place stress on their body. It should be installed by a competent person and have proper components (bracing, planks minimum 18 inches wide, proper access).

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
