Construction sites are dangerous, and injuries often occur. These areas are full of dangerous equipment, poisonous chemicals and gases, high voltage electricity and uneven work surfaces.
Common Construction Site Accidents
Scaffolding accidents: Scaffolding accidents involve workers falling from scaffolds.
Heavy machinery accidents: If workers are not properly trained to use machinery, then they may suffer injuries.
Vehicle accidents: If trucks and other vehicles on the construction site are not properly used, they can lead to injuries or even death of workers.
Electrocution: Construction sites often have high voltage equipment. Construction workers who work close to this equipment may suffer shocks and burns.
Occupational exposure: Some workers work in hazardous conditions, like refineries and mines. These areas may release poisonous gases and chemicals which in turn affects health.
Slip and fall accidents: Falls can occur on construction sites if debris or equipment obstructs the workspace or if safety procedures are not followed.
