Demolition-related deaths prompt OSHA to address the issue
In light of the recent fatalities in the construction industry during demolition procedures, the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) has announced updated demolition safety procedures on its website that would help educate workers and employers about hazard assessment and mitigation.
In a press statement released on July 10, the OSHA also said it recently conducted demolition safety training to benefit workers and employers in Philadelphia on the federal, state, and local government levels.
According to the OSHA, fatalities in the demolition industry could be prevented with proper planning, use of appropriate protective equipment, training, and compliance with the OSHA safety standards.
