Sprains & Strains in Construction- Pulling Cables

Taking the right protective steps to help prevent injuries at a work site is beneficial in many ways. In this video, an electrician is standing on an elevated platform that reduces stress on his neck and entire body and a mechanical wire puller to get the wire he needs a lot easier. Had he avoided this and only used a ladder to reach up, the stress would have caused major strains that can easily be prevented. OSHA’s ergonomic guidelines like the ones shown in this video are simple steps to avoid long-term injuries on you and your employees while at work.
