Safety is one of the major challenges in the material handling market in construction sites. In construction sites, material handling equipment is a major cause of accidents though safety measures are being followed and monitored continuously. Material handling involves diverse operations at the construction sites such as hoisting tons of steel with a crane, driving a truck loaded with bricks and concrete, or operating any other material handling equipment including hydraulic excavators, lifting devices, and conveyor systems and lack of operational experience results in the number of accidents and deaths. For instance, according to a study published by the Saudi Journal of Biological Sciences on August 2020, there were around 25.3% of accidents were caused due to material handling at construction sites of Jeddah city of Saudi Arabia. Lack of safety and inexperienced workers at the construction sites results in more accidents in material handling and this can impact the material handling market negatively.
