Construction Site Injuries
Construction workers are the backbone of the United States. They build our highways, homes, and businesses. Construction sites are dangerous. In fact, in 2009 there were 816 fatal on-the-job injuries to construction workers (more than in any other single industry sector). Construction site accidents made up almost 20 percent of work-related deaths in the U.S. that year.
There are many safety hazards on every construction site, including heavy machinery, power tools, scaffolding, ladders, lifts, exposed electrical wires, and construction debris.
Some examples of construction site accidents include:
- Highway Construction Accidents
- Roadway Safety Defects
- Crane Accidents
- Scaffold Accidents
- Safety Code Violations
- Motor Vehicle Accidents on the Job Site
- OSHA Violations
- Electrical Accidents
- Forklift Accidents
- Excavation Accidents
- Toxic Chemical Exposure
- Open Pits and Trenches
