Construction is one of America’s most dangerous industries. For example, the risk of being struck by a piece of heavy equipment is far higher than in other industries. OSHA regulations mandate that all employers have a duty to protect the safety of their employees on a construction worksite. On worksites where there are multiple employers, general contractors also have a duty to make sure there are adequate safety precautions in place.
But accidents still happen on construction sites for any number of reasons. Falls, burns, heavy falling materials, equipment malfunction, explosions and electric shocks are some of the common causes of construction injuries. Even the most conscientious construction worker can find him or herself in a dangerous situation that can’t be managed and suffer an injury. For a construction worker, an injury can mean being out of work for weeks, months or even years — and sometimes, it means never being able to work again.
