Safety at Construction Sites

Believe it or not, the warm weather should be hitting Northeast Ohio soon! There are different spots in the region where construction is in full-swing, gearing to make buildings look nicer and roads easier to travel.

constructionConstruction sites, as a worker and as a pedestrian/driver, can be dangerous areas to be near, however.  Sometimes, safety measures are overlooked due to lack of supervision on-site and tight deadlines to meet. As a rule of thumb, helmets should be worn whenever possible, sites should be avoided during inclement weather, and the communication of a dangerous site should be made visible to workers and pedestrians/drivers, alike.
