Contractors and construction companies should provide a safe work place. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has developed construction site safety standards and regulations which apply to construction site workers, construction site equipment, and training for construction workers.
Although construction workers may be trained on basic safety guidelines and precautions, construction accidents still occur. Defective products and machines, improperly marked hazardous materials, improperly secured scaffolding, misuse or nonuse of safety harnesses, as well as negligent or reckless fellow construction workers may create an unsafe working environment that can result in serious injuries.
Some of the most common types of construction accidents include:
- Crane Accidents
- Falling Object Accidents
- Forklift Accidents
- Scaffolding Accidents
- Fall Accidents
- Being Hit or Run Over By Construction Equipment
Construction workers who suffer construction site injuries, and their families, often feel overwhelmed with mounting medical expenses, and loss of income. Sometimes the companies responsible for the accident turn their back on you when you need their help. Texas attorney, David B.
