The construction sector is an extremely booming sector because of the large amounts of infrastructure that is needed to cater for an ever-growing population. This means that large infrastructure projects need to be created around to make sure that the growing needs of the population are satisfied and that the country can safely and efficiently function. This continuous construction of infrastructure projects can lead to a growth in the employment as well as construction projects require a large range of employees, ranging from skilled to unskilled labour, which means that a large amount of people gain their livelihood from the construction sector. However, like any other line of work, there is also the risk of things going horribly wrong which means that strict quality and safety measures need to be undertaken to make sure that the risk of things going horribly wrong is extremely small and, whatever residual risk is present is manageable and acceptable.
Work at Heights
Due to the limited space that is available in most cities and countries, there is a trend to expand cities vertically rather than expanding them in size. This necessitates a growing need of high-rise buildings which means that large portion of the work that needs to be done on these buildings in order to be constructed needs to occur at height. In many cases this is unavoidable and needs to be done which is why proper safety measures need to be taken to ensure the safety of the workers that are working on the construction projects. To ensure that all the safety measures are effectively implemented work at height regulations need to be enforced and surveys need to be regularly carried out to make sure that the safety equipment used is up to the standard and workers are adhering to the safety protocols that are mentioned in the construction design management plan. Working at heights in WA can be extremely dangerous and therefore safety harnesses and mobile platforms with guardrails need to be used to make sure that workers are not prone to falling from heights. This is not only a legal requirement in most parts of the world, but it is also the moral obligation of the employer to make sure that the employee is have a safe and conducive work environment, one which makes sure that the risk of working at heights is minimised and that they are not prone to any unforeseen events which can be fatal in some cases.
