June 4: Inspections of Construction Sites Increased
WorkSafeNB has stepped up inspections of commercial and residential construction sites. So far, it has issued 37 orders to 23 employers, focusing on fall protection. Already this year, falls have resulted in serious injuries to several workers but no fatalities. To prevent injuries from falls, WorkSafeNB reminds employers and supervisors to provide fall protection to workers who are required to work at heights and ensure that they use it.
