Orillia, Ontario (PRWEB) April 30, 2014
W.S. Safety Technologies, a Canadian construction safety engineering company located in Ontario, today released an analysis of the most recent Ministry of Labour’s report on jobsite violations and penalties in commercial construction. The paper was written by Ryan Michels, Safety Specialist at W.S. Safety.
The paper thoroughly examines several cases in which a worker or an employee cut corners because of money or time and the often terrible results of a casual approach to safety. Proper worker training in fall hazards and fall protection equipment is essential and it appears that many workers have training that is inadequate for the fall hazards they may be exposed to, the paper concludes.
Ryan also explores how W.S. Safety’s years of construction jobsite consulting have led to invaluable lessons that it brings to every job. For each examined case in the study, W.S. Safety recommends products and services that can increase workplace safety.
“We are familiar with job site safety requirements through many years of experience installing fall arrest systems, guardrails, work platform systems, fall arrest anchors, as well as many other projects.” says Ryan. “We know how to complete a job safely and efficiently while following OHSA Regulations.”
The good news is that there is a new working-at-heights training standard from the Ontario Ministry of Labor that should help to ensure that fall protection training in the future will be more thorough and effective. W.S. Safety are experts at helping commercial construction companies comply with safety regulations and ensure good workplace outcomes.
W.S. Safety’s 30 years of combined experience providing custom-designed equipment for fall protection, rooftop fall protection, mezzanine safety gates, access gangways, and confined space equipment, will help guide its worksite partners to ensure complete compliance with all Ontario safety laws and guidelines.
