Construction Site Accident

Construction Site Falls

Construction Site Falls: It is easy enough to get tripped up in a familiar setting like your backyard, inside your house, the local store parking lot or your school/ place of work. When on a construction site there are so many dangerous obstacles, machinery and elevated surfaces that falls on a construction site are very common. Not only are they common but they accounted for 35 percent of construction deaths last year according to OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration). Unfortunately, these accidents are usually caused by improper fall protection. These falls can be the fault of equipment manufacturing error or on-site protocol violations.
