Infographic on the “Fatal Four” of Construction Accidents, by Viewpoint

Infographic on the "Fatal Four" Construction Injuries, by Maxwell ConstructionThe construction industry has seen worker deaths drop almost two-thirds since 1970, according to the United States Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). However, it’s still the deadliest private industry in the U. S., with 775 on-the-job deaths in 2012. What’s more, OSHA says that over half of those deaths were caused by just four types of accidents: falls, electrocutions, and getting caught between or struck by objects. Preventing this “fatal four” of accidents can save over 400 lives a year.

This infographic from Viewpoint, formerly Maxwell Systems, lays it all out in one place. Click on the “Read More” link to see it.

Infographic: What Cuts Ductile Iron Better, PowerGrit Chainsaw Chain or Ductile Iron Ring Saw Safety Blade?

Infographic: What Cuts Ductile Iron Better, PowerGrit Chainsaw Chain or Ductile Iron Ring Saw Safety Blade?We think that the Ductile Iron Ring Saw Safety Blade is better at cutting buried ductile iron pipe than ICS’s PowerGrit chainsaw chain. After all, it cuts faster, lasts longer, and is more versatile. However, that leaves us with a problem: how do we show you that?

So we asked our resident graphic artists to come up with an infographic – our very first! – showing exactly how the Ductile Iron Ring Saw Safety Blade beats the PowerGrit chain. You can either click on the picture below to see a JPEG of it or download a PDF version with links to all of our sources.
