Plan & Prevent Workplace Accidents

A Hidden Epidemic: Construction Worker Suicide

According to data from the CDC, construction workers are at a very high risk for suicide – a rate of 53.3 per 100,000 workers.

The following are contributing factors leading to these statistics:

-Early hours and late nights on the job, especially during critical project phases

-Separation from family due to travel from project to project across states and cities leading to loneliness and isolation

-Lack of a steady paycheck due to regular lay-off periods or seasonal work

-Construction workers often struggle with pain, stress and fatigue from injuries which leads to alcohol, prescription medication and illegal drug use

-Working in a fearless, risk-taking environment reduces the fear of life and death situations

Careful Use of Propane Heaters on Construction Sites

To help combat the cold, portable heaters fueled by propane are often used on construction sites. While they provide adequate heat, there are some obvious safety concerns when using large, high-BTU, portable heaters.

Certain precautions need to be observed when using a propane heater:

Only use heaters that are in good condition and operating properly.

Keep propane tanks upright and on a firm, level surface.

Locate propane tanks at least 6 feet from the heater.

Do not use heaters in an area where they can come into contact with combustible materials.

Do not place a heater directly on a plywood floor. Instead, place it on a 4-foot by 4-foot square of fire-resistant drywall or cement-board.
