Construction Safety in the construction sector

uvex professional safety equipment for the construction industry

Around 327,000 companies are currently operating in Germany’s construction sector. Of these, approximately 23 percent operate in the mainstream construction industry and 77 percent in the finishing trade. A large proportion of these businesses are small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), but a number of large companies are also emerging.

Regardless of their size, all the companies have one thing in common: occupational accidents, occupational illnesses and work-related health hazards are always a possibility for construction workers. Occupational safety officers, safety engineers and other similar roles are responsible for minimising these risks, every single day.

uvex is here to help!

Professional safety products for construction work

To enable you to protect your employees as best as possible in the workplace, we have developed uvex professional safety products specifically for the construction sector. The products are tailored to meet the challenges of individual production groups; some products even fulfil the requirements of BG-Bau for occupational safety premiums (Berufsgenossenschaft der Bauwirtschaft – German employers’ liability insurance association for the construction industry).

Companies can therefore protect their employees with high-quality uvex products and save money at the same time.

Professional safety products are an investment in employees’ health

With over 4,000 reported cases, skin cancer is the number 1 occupational disease in Germany. The disease, caused by UV radiation, has replaced noise-induced hearing loss as the most common occupational disease. However, other illnesses triggered by physical influences, such as spinal and lumbar problems, infectious diseases and respiratory diseases are also becoming increasingly prevalent in the construction industry.

The development shows that high-quality professional safety equipment for your employees is extremely important. With appropriate safety equipment from uvex, not only do you cover the primary function of protection, but other important elements such as design, functionality and durability of materials are also fulfilled. This in turn increases wearer acceptance on the part of employees, which has a positive effect on health and motivation.

This is why it is worth investing in high-quality professional safety equipment from uvex

  • Increased wearer acceptance results in improved employee healt
    -> Fewer occupational accidents, illnesses and work-related health hazards
