In an effort to shed visibility on a topic of growing importance, the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) says the month of October will focus on safety with a particular focus on preventing dropped objects.
According to data obtained by the Bureau of Labor Statistics from all industries in the U.S. in 2013, over 10,000 injuries were recorded due to fallen objects that resulted in days away from work. AWEA says the goal is to share ideas and lessons learned about safety while raising awareness to prevent future incidents.
Throughout October, the association will be holding webinars and seminars to shed light on the safety topic. For more information, click here.
