Any time installation is performed with arms raised above a worker’s head, additional time and risk are added to the project. When you look at OSHA’s list of the most frequently cited violations, four of the 10 involve injuries related to overhead work.
On the job site, ladders and lifts are so common that it’s easy to forget the risks involved in using them. In fact, OSHA estimates that for general industrial construction, falls from ladders account for 20% of all fatal and lost workday injuries.
How can contractors save time on tricky ceiling installations while also lowering the risks associated with dangerous overhead work?
Limit Time Spent on Overhead Work
While using ladders onsite is often inevitable, reducing the amount of time spent performing strenuous overhead work can be easily achieved. Designed with the installer in mind, nVent CADDY offers an efficient and innovative solution with the introduction of the 512SA T-Grid Box Hanger.
