Why you need a hard hat working construction

Whether you are driving a forklift or delivering drywall, here is why you need a hard hat anywhere near a construction site.

A tape measure slipped off the belt of a construction worker at the top of a tower, hit a piece of metal equipment on the way down, and then struck another worker on the head, knocking him unconscious. The worker was taken to a hospital where he died a short time later.

The victim had arrived at the construction site to deliver drywall, he had just parked his truck and stepped out of the vehicle when the tape measure, which had fallen 400 feet, struck him.
