As far as construction accidents go, there are all types of scenarios that can lead to serious work injuries. Below is a list of four common accidents that occur on construction sites.
Falling objects. Hard hats are a must on any construction site, but sometimes, even this safety device won’t provide adequate protection from falling debris. When a falling object hits a construction worker, the result can be head trauma and other major injuries.
Falls. Fall accidents on construction sites are commonplace. These types of accidents are catastrophic by nature and tend to cause permanent injuries and death.
Crane collapses. Crane accidents have made headlines in recent years, as they have been to blame for numerous deaths. A crane accident can result from a defective part, untrained operator or other cause.
Electrical accidents. Electricians aren’t the only ones at risk of electrical shock and electrocution on a construction site. Any construction worker who is near a power line or is working with a defective piece of equipment risks sustaining an electrical injury.
