The works related to construction, whatever the area and the type may bring various risks, including those about physical aspects. These risks factor can be noise, heat, cold, vibration, pressure and radiation. Different aspects and activities in construction may lead to the primary risks, to which workers are exposed, and even supervisors may be victims of those risks if the necessary measures are not taken. Masons, to mention one of these professions, have to be aware of contracting dermatitis because of the exposure to cement; they also have to be trained to avoid bad postures during hard work with heavy loads. It is important to distinguish that every work and activity in the construction sector has its risks, however, all these risks can be handle and avoided in a right way in order to abstain from any health risk.

Yoleida Linares, one of the responsible for offering the workshop, said that more than 40 participants were part of the activity that took place a month ago in the Carabobo entity with an educational purpose. Students said that the workshop gave them important knowledge to their careers, especially for those currently working in the sector. The Venezuelan Construction Chamber (CVC) has repeatedly stated that it has always assumed its commitment to CSR and it also has been responsible for encouraging all its members to contribute in it, not only in terms of prevention, but also regarding the improvement of the environment.
