As a construction worker, you’re often required to work at great heights, either on ladders or scaffolding, on windows or roofs. Falls from these heights can cause serious injuries and death.
From interior to exterior projects, construction workers regularly use scaffolding, which can be a dangerous safety hazard to the workers and pedestrians.
Slip and Fall There are many obstacles around a construction site that make tripping, slipping, and falling a daily hazard.
Falling Objects On sites with multiple levels of work, you run the risk of being hit by falling tools, debris, and other objects.
Machinery Accident While working with any machinery, no matter how small or heavy like cranes, bulldozers, nail guns, or jackhammers, an error in use or accident can easily occur on a job site.
Overextension From the long hours and treacherous weather conditions, it’s easy to cross the line from physically exhausted to seriously becoming ill or injured.
Electrocution Construction sites often have exposed wires and power lines that can cause electrocution if not managed properly.
Explosion and Fire When working near gas lines or other hazardous materials, explosions or fires may injure workers near the site or in the blast radius.
