Whether it’s from the massive machines on the jobsite, drones circling up above, or even the mobile devices used by workers and supervisors, the construction industry has the ability to connect man, machine and technology, enabling them to work side-by-side. And all this emerging technology will help the construction industry create a more secure jobsite.
According to the U.S. Dept. of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), construction is a high-hazard industry that comprises a wide range of activities. Some of the areas that most need to be addressed include communication towers, confined spaces, cranes and derricks, fall protection, nail gun safety and so much more.
The good news is technology is emerging that can help make the construction jobsite safer and more secure.
