Common Causes Behind Construction Accidents
Accidents on a construction site can happen due to several different factors. These factors can be exacerbated by neglect from fellow employees, supervisors on-site, site foremen, as well as construction companies as a whole.
Some of the most notable causes behind construction site accidents include but are not limited to:
- Falling from a height, such as a ladder or scaffolding
- Unsafe exposure to hazardous materials
- Slippery floor surfaces causing slip and falls
- Defective tools or machinery used on site
- Lack of proper safety equipment
- Faulty safety equipment
- Not enough safety precautions are taken on-site
- Building or wall collapses on site
- Fires caused by negligence or improper adherence to safety rules
- Electrocution caused by faulty equipment or exposure to unsafe conditions
- Overall dangerous conditions, including lack of supervision and lack of training
The above causes behind construction site accidents can cause everything from a slip and fall injury to something catastrophic such as loss of limbs, electrocution, and permanent nerve damage, and even death.
