Construction and Worksite Accidents
Construction is one of the most dangerous jobs in the U.S. and is responsible for thousands of preventable injuries and fatalities each year. Mishaps involving caustic chemicals, electrical systems, heavy construction equipment, unsafe scaffolding, and other hazards can lead to serious accidents if employers, contractors, subcontractors, and others fail to take the proper precautions and make the safety of both workers and passersby a top priority. Common causes of construction accidents include:
- Old, outdated, or poorly maintained equipment
- Equipment that is missing critical safety components
- Missing personal protective gear
- Violations of workplace safety regulations
- Falls, electrocutions, amputations, and injuries caused by falling objects are common on construction sites.
