Communication is important in so many worksite settings. However, when it comes to heavy equipment operators and loud industrial settings, it can mean the loss of digits or other very dangerous physical situations. When clear communication is had between workers at the jobsite, it not only improves communication but can complete the job in a shorter amount of time with greater quality—as managers can express their clear expectations immediately without having to turn off a noisy machine or perhaps get on a forklift to get to the precise location of the worker with a question. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, heavy construction had the greatest number of fatalities, at 1,008 in 2020. Often, on-the-job accidents are occurring due to breakdowns in communication. When multiple crew members are on a job site with heavy equipment and/or potentially dangerous operations, precision and attention cannot afford to be missed nor can any instructions be misunderstood.
