If you are a construction worker in Cincinnati, risking your life while working at heights is likely par for the course. Unfortunately, many construction company owners or contractors disregard some of the prescribed safety standards to speed up construction. This could be to avoid missing deadlines and incurring penalties or to boost the bottom line by saving on costly scaffolding materials.
Did you know that you could refuse to work on an unstable or insecure scaffolding structure? Instead of relying on your employer to fulfill his or her duty to protect your health and safety on scaffolds, you can take some precautions of your own.
