Over the past few years, the OHS Division has been visiting residential construction sites around Saskatchewan. The officers are finding that only 60 per cent of workers are wearing hard hats and only 64 per cent are wearing fall arrest. WorkSafe Saskatchewan is concerned that this is causing workers to get hurt.
So on Sept. 20 and Sept. 26, WorkSafe Saskatchewan partnered with the Saskatchewan Construction Safety Association (SCSA) to host Mission: Zero coffee breaks and safety demonstrations at residential construction sites in Regina and Saskatoon.
To show the importance of safety glasses, a member of the SCSA performed an eye protection demonstration. The SCSA also did a fall protection demonstration.
Construction workers, WCB staff and SCSA team members enjoyed the sunny break to share coffee and doughnuts while talking about safety.
