Company policies for all of the large construction companies I worked for prohibited the use of ear buds and radio headphones because of the inability to hear warning signals, horns, backup alarms etc.

Plus studies have shown that it interferes with a persons ability to have their full attention on the task at hand resulting in more accidents and liability for the business.

Driving while using headphones or earbuds is illegal because of the same reasons. Not being able to hear emergency vehicles and horns.
