Near-Misses, Maydays and Floor Collapses

If you’ve been paying attention to the latest news and on the job reports these past few days, you may have noticed there’s been an emerging trend evident in near miss, close-calls resulting in maydays, RIT deployments and self-rescue resulting from floor compromise and floor collapse. 

As I was doing some research and posting links related to the first one or two events on Buildingsonfire on Facebook, HERE, it became evident that there was an immediate opportunity to get some learning’s and insights out. If you have a chance head over to Facebook and link into Buildingsonfire and check out the incident profile links posted to date as well as some immediate report links.

I’ll be posting some operational safety and awareness insights related to building construction, floor systems and operational integrity in the next few days both here at and I’ll get a comprehensive list of events and incident parameters compiled and posted also.

In the meantime here are some links I pulled together that you should take the time to read and share with your companies, personnel and staff…..

This seems like a good time to have a ten minute drill on these events as Operating Expeeince (OE) on floor systems and operational safety.
