The construction industry is one of the most dangerous with the 'fatal four' - fall from height, trapped by equipment, struck by an object, or electrocution. Everyday offers workers a challenging physical environment which can lead to other issues like strokes, heart attacks, heat exhaustion, frostbite, or other non life threatening injuries. Our customers install our nurse call systems on their construction sites because they save time.
