Common Construction Site Accidents

As a construction worker, you take great pride in ensuring the quality and safety of every job you complete. Unfortunately, accidents can happen from time to time. In this case, there is a chance that those working on the project could be injured.

Here are five of the most common types of construction site accidents:

  • Construction site falls: from roofing falls to crane falls among other types, this is always a concern.
  • Electrical accidents: electrocution, electric shock, and other related accidents on the job site can lead to serious injury.
  • Welding accidents: these can be caused by exposure to high temperatures, UV light, and welding fumes.
  • Falling objects: when overhead work is being completed, the risk of falling objects is always a concern.
  • Trench collapses: when trenches are dug for projects, such as burying power lines or plumbing, the risk of collapse is very real.

It is imperative to do whatever it takes to stay safe while working on a construction site. If you have been injured, regardless of the cause, you may be able to receive compensation.
