THE DANGER
 
The sheer number of hazards on a construction site makes it virtually impossible to prevent all injuries, but there is no excuse for cutting corner on safety. Some hazards include:
 
  • Falls from scaffolds and other elevations
 
  • Being struck by moving or falling machinery
 
  • Electrocution
 
  • Eexposure to asbestos, dust and toxic chemicals
 
  • Injuries from defective or unsafe equipment
 
  • Lifting and repetitive motion injuries
 
  • Exposure to loud noises
 
According to the US Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics, the construction industry accounts for the highest number of worker fatalities of any industry.
WORKERS' COMPENSATION
 
If you aren injured while working at work, your financial recovery may be limited by workers' compensation laws.
 
Other parties than your employer may be legally responsible for your injuries. These could include third-party contractors, property owners or equipment manufacturers. These recoveries are not limited by worker's compensation.
