Globally, incidents of injury and health hazard rates are significantly higher in the construction industry than in any other industry. For example, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) estimated that about 4% of construction workers suffer from a work-related illness every year, while 3% suffer from a work-related injury. Owing to this, they constantly help develop preventive measures that will avoid significant harm and crisis.
Construction site employers must provide a safe work environment to every construction worker, as construction sites can be dangerous, hazardous, and toxic for them. Hence, organizations carry out safety audits to ensure the workplace is always a safe space for workers.
