Construction and factory workers are well aware that their jobs are fraught with countless safety hazards. These job sites are usually unsafe environments because of the tools, dangerous equipment, large machinery, and the long, tiring hours they are expected to work. These threats are compounded by things such as insufficient safety measures, faulty equipment, or any one of the thousands of other factors that can cause workplace accidents and injuries that are just as devastating to the workers as they are to those who rely on them.
