Proper construction site safety equipment and clothing

Working on a construction site is rewarding and dangerous all in one shot. You feel a sense of accomplishment when you see the finished product. You can also have fear and worry as you move through the steps of the project due to the inherent dangers of the job. Today, we will discuss the proper construction site safety equipment and clothing all workers in Pasadena should have.

You should have the following personal safety equipment or gear when working on a construction site in Pasadena:

  • Steel-toed boots
  • Goggles
  • Approved helmet
  • Gloves
  • Ear plugs or sound-canceling headset
  • Breathing mask
  • Face shield for cutting, welding, chipping or grinding
  • FR clothing for electrical work
  • Welding leathers for welding work
  • Reflective vest

The clothes you wear on a construction site should be determined by the weather, but never wear shorts. You will want to wear long pants, preferably jeans or some heavy-duty material. Don't forget long thermal underwear in the winter. You can wear a short-sleeved shirt during the warmer months and long sleeves when it is cold. Make sure your clothes are not too loose that they get caught in machinery or other items on the construction site.

Be sure you inspect your safety equipment and clothing each day before heading to work. If any of it is damaged, torn or broken, you should replace the items immediately so as to avoid any injury.

Have you been injured in a California construction site accident? It's best to talk about your situation with an experienced personal injury attorney so you can find out your legal options.
