Without professional assistance, construction work can be hazardous. Before engaging in construction work of any kind, it is highly recommended to seek the services of a qualified contractor to avoid these four extremely dangerous hazards:
1. Electrocutions- Most of us are oblivious to the risk of operating on open wires. Fortunately for you, you can hire a qualified contractor who knows how to deal with electricity.
2. Heights- A considerable amount of construction work involves operating from potentially fatal heights. Falling from such heights could either lead to severe bone fractures or even worse, death. Qualified contractors are professionally trained to work safely from considerable heights.
3. Objects in Motion- These could either be supply vehicles, diggers, or overhead lifting equipment. During construction, these objects are always in motion, especially on uneven terrain. Qualified contractors are equipped with Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to prevent fatal accidents.
4. Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS)- This is a debilitating (not to mention painful) disease that affects the joints, nerves, and blood vessels. It is caused by continuous use of handheld electric tools and groundwork equipment. Rather than risk your oh-so-fragile bones, hire a fully armed construction worker to take care of all the hard work.
