Common Construction Site Injuries
With heavy machinery all over the place, ladders, stairs, and scaffolding
holding workers at heights, high-voltage levels of electricity being used
frequently, and toxic substances being transported and used, it’s
no wonder that the construction injury is listed by the Occupational Safety
and Health Administration as one of the most dangerous industries to work
in. In fact, in 2015 alone, over 20% of all workplace fatalities occurred
in the construction industry.
There are four types of injuries that cause the vast majority of injuries
and deaths on construction sites every year, otherwise known as the “fatal
The “fatal four” consists of:
- Struck by object injuries
- Caught-in or caught-between injuries
Of these four injuries, falls are by far the most common, as workers may
slip and fall off a ladder or scaffolding, trip over an exposed wire or
material, or a material supporting them may choose to give out, causing
them to fall. It should come as no surprise then that the most often-violated
OSHA safety standards that are violated are ones pertaining to fall protection,
including using the proper equipment, best practices, and more. Because
so many of these injuries are preventable, it’s strongly advised
that you review your case with an attorney if you or a loved one were
injured while on a construction site. An attorney can review all of the
evidence in your case and determine if negligence played a role in the
accident, which would make you entitled to compensation.
If you or a loved one were injured on a construction site, don’t
hesitate to put a capable, proven ally on your side!
