Common causes of construction site accidents

With all the dangerous situations and equipment at the typical construction site, accidents happen regularly. The following are some of the most common we see:

  • Inappropriate safety devices. If your employer has not provided you with appropriate safety gear, you may suffer serious injuries. Safety gear may include hard hats, straps for properly securing loads and safety harnesses to keep you from falling from heights.
  • Struck by falling items. Tools, equipment and unsecured building materials can fall on you at a construction site, resulting in lasting injuries. Even objects falling from a shelf can cause injuries to your head, neck, back, shoulders and spine.
  • Overexertion. Construction is a physical job involving long hours on your feet and performing the same tasks repeatedly — sometimes in bad weather. You may also be asked to lift and move heavy objects. These actions may cause repetitive trauma injuries to the joints, extremities and other areas of the body.
