Common Construction Site Accidents

As mentioned, state and federal guidelines require employers to obtain certain permits, conduct regular inspections, and implement job safety programs to limit workplace injuries.

Leading causes of construction site accidents include:

  • Crane accidents
  • Harness accidents
  • Defective equipment
  • Hoist accidents
  • Slips and falls
  • Fires and explosions
  • Misuse of tools
  • Welding accidents

If you are hurt, the first thing you should do is get medical attention.
