Quiz: English for the construction industry

Over the last few months, throughout our series of English lessons in „Inżynier Budownictwa” monthly, we have managed to cover various topics related to the construction industry. Most of them tackled the issue of occupa- tional health and safety on a construction site including earthworks, concrete and reinforced concrete works, electrical works as well as works at heights. In addition we learned few facts about railway construction, resi- dential housing and bicycle paths. We could also read about superstitions regarding building a house, as well as New Year’s resolutions. The following quiz is a great way to check what you remember from those ten lessons published from September 2016.

OHS for works at heights

Work at height means any work done at a height of 1.0 m or more above ground/floor level, if the surface is not enclosed on all sides to a height of at least 1.5 m. Due to specific conditions it is considered a particularly dangerous work. According to the statistics of the National Labour Inspectorate, falls from scaffolding, ceilings, roofs, ladders, stairs as well as various platforms and bridges account for about a half of all serious and fatal accidents on the site.
