We don’t often think about our ability to listen to our favorite music, communicate with people, or read the vibe of a room through the tone of the conversations taking place within it. How would your life change if you weren’t able to do these things?

Our eyes and face are more than just the first thing other people notice about us. For construction workers, this part of their bodies is oftentimes crucial to do good work. From assessing visual construction components to hearing and smelling the signs of danger, your employees probably use their eyes, noses, and ears constantly to do their jobs right. Take those away via injury from a previously able-bodied construction worker, and that person is probably out of a career.

We all use electricity. From powering our lights to our cell phones, it’s almost impossible to live a modern life without it. Electricity also renders itself as an integral force in the construction industry. It powers tools, keeps workers safe by making lighting possible, and generally makes the construction of our huge, modern-scale projects possible.

Competence: it is defined, outside of the construction business, as being able to perform any given skill adequately. Outside of construction, a competent person, by proxy, needs to be trained just enough to be able to get the job done. However, inside the construction business, “competent person” takes on a whole new meaning. It’s a title shrouded in legal jargon under OSHA regulations—a title that requires more than mere competence to obtain, and a title that can be confusing to understand, even for seasoned construction firms.

Though the purpose and use of respirators in the industrial world may seem straightforward, they are actually more complex than you may realize.
