Ladders are a common tool among many Pennsylvania workers. While use of ladders seems rather straightforward, failure to utilize the proper procedures can result in a significant workplace accident. Falls from ladders can cause devastating injuries, and in some cases may even lead to death.

How can I avoid being struck-by or caught-in work equipment?

Pennsylvania workers in the energy industry (such as gas and oil drilling) face a myriad of risks on a daily basis. Hazards known as struck-by or caught-in/between are exceedingly common, and can result in debilitating injury or death under severe circumstances. Accordingly, it's important for you to be aware of methods for preventing injury when using machinery or other equipment that poses a risk.

How can I reduce the risk of mining injury?

These hazards can lead to catastrophic injury or even death without the proper safety measures in place. Accordingly, it's important to know what steps you and your employer can take to mitigate the chance of debilitating injury.

That's why both employers as well as workers must make it a point to create a safe environment when cement work is a standard occurrence.
