Construction workers often face the most dangerous working conditions compared to other industries. Despite regulations, job safety programs, and inspections at the job site, serious construction site accidents resulting in injury happen all too frequently.
Falls from scaffolds and other elevations, being struck by moving or falling machinery or equipment, electrocution, and injuries caused by unsafe or defective equipment are all hazards construction workers may have to contend with while performing their jobs.
Not only is the risk for accidents high, construction workers may experience health problems as a direct result of exposure to asbestos, dust and chemicals and they may have their ability to earn a living impacted by injuries resulting from lifting and other repetitive stress injuries.
