Mining, construction, extraction, building, plus so many other professions, are exposed to dangers and, at most times, present threat to people’s lives. Over the years, there have been an array of accidents that took place at several locations throughout the world. Thousands of people lost their lives, and millions of people suffered from the aftermath of these accidents.
Part of the reason why accidents and their consequences were faced so frequently was because of the lack of awareness about taking health and safety reasons. Founded in 1970, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration agency was created to minimize the horrible accidents and increase awareness about the importance of health and safety measures at workplaces.
On top of that, the government also created strict legislation and rules to follow to decrease the number of accidents along with people who lose their lives in the line of work. It has also become necessary to have, at least, the basic knowledge about what the safety and health measures are, and why they are essential.
