'We don't realize we have hearing loss until it is too late'

Objects Standard we've helped draft, we found our non-shock absorbing tetoron polyester webbing delivered superior test results," said Brent Velenchenko, product specialist, 

In its  2018 Safety Performance Report, the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) 
said that contractors who use the association's  Safety Performance Evaluation Process (STEP) can make their companies up to 670% safer than the industry average and reduce reportable safety incidents by 85%.
Despite initiatives like STEP, some construction industry safety organizations have reported distressing safety statistics recently.  In December, the  CPWR also reported  that more than 
800 construction workers between  2011 and 2015 were killed in struck-by accidents. 
Nearly 18% of those fatalities died from  being hit by a vehicle. The CPWR found that 
almost 60% of those workers died in a  construction work zone. Of those workers killed by something other than a vehicle, 51%  died from being hit by falling objects or equipment.


Construction workers are at high risk for developing MSDs because they are frequently 
doing manual lifting and material handling tasks, using repetitive motions, and may be 
exposed to vibrations and inconsistent working conditions.


3M's brand new premises at Charnwood Campus in Loughborough has now officially 
opened.  Around 170 employees are based in Building 47 at the site, working across three 
floors in  a 36,000 sq ft building.

The coroner's inquest into the death of construction worker John Francis Smith returned eight recommendations from jurors concerning safety equipment, practices and education. 
John Smith was 37 when he died after falling 21 feet from the peak of the roof of a cottage 
he was helping to build on Percy Lake, north of Haliburton. He was not wearing a fall 
prevention harness, nor was he wearing a hard hat or work boots. 

Artificial intelligence is predicted to shake-up the workplace; how worried should we be?
