Noise is a common problem in construction. But until now, it has not received the attention it de-serves. Most electrical contractors might even dismiss this hazard as nonexistent unless they were working in particularly noisy environments.
In 2013, there were 796 on-the-job fatalities in the construction industry, 294 of which were caused by falls. Additionally, improper fall protection is one of the most cited violations on job sites by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
