Work Site Hazards
The type of work being performed and the location of a worksite will have an effect on potential construction site risks, but there are some causes of accidents that are more frequently reported than others. The following dangers are among the most common hazards associated with work on a construction site:
- Lack of necessary safety equipment such as guardrails, helmets, and safety straps
- Objects piled up in walkways
- Exposed electrical wiring
- Defective tools and machinery
- Unmarked pathways for large construction vehicles
Injuries resulting from these hazards can be serious in some cases, and recovery is not always affordable for an injured worker. By working with an experienced lawyer, however, some individuals may be able to secure the full amount of compensation they need to cover their accident-related losses.
