Each year, thousands of workers are injured or killed in construction site accidents. When such an accident occurs, the owners, architects, other contractors, insurance companies and manufacturers of equipment can be held responsible for inadequate safety provisions.
Construction work is dangerous work. Workers are constantly dealing with heavy, powerful and dangerous equipment; hazardous substances; and extreme conditions. Construction workers are often required to work long hours on tight schedules when constructing or repairing single and multi-family dwellings, commercial properties, industrial facilities, utility ways, and roadways.
Some of the most common construction site injury accidents include:
Perhaps the most common accident occurs because of contact with power lines. Overhead and buried power lines at a construction site are very hazardous because they carry extremely high voltage and produce very severe injuries.
Falls are the leading cause of fatalities in the construction industry. In fact, falls from elevations account for one-third of all deaths in construction.
Struck-by objects are another leading cause of construction-related deaths. About 75% of struck-by fatalities involve heavy equipment, such as trucks or cranes.
Trenching and Excavation Accidents
Working in trenches and performing excavations are perhaps the most dangerous jobs in construction work. The statistics seem to support this observation with the fatality rate for excavation work being 112% higher than the rate for general construction.
