CONSTRUCTION AND WORKPLACE ACCIDENTS
The U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics has reported that one out of every ten construction workers is accidentally injured every year, and 11,200 of those accidents result in disability. It is not surprising, then, that workplace accidents are a leading cause of death in the United States.
A construction site poses all kinds of threats to an employee’s health: falls from roofing and scaffolding, moving equipment or falling materials, injury or even death from defective equipment, electrocution, fire, or explosion, amongst many other dangers. When a construction site accident occurs, the owners, architects, insurance companies and manufacturers of equipment can be held responsible for inadequate safety provisions. The general contractors and the subcontractors are required to provide a reasonably safe site, to warn of hazards inherent in the site and work to hire careful employees to coordinate job safety, and to supervise compliance with safety specifications. Despite this, workplaces and construction sites are filled with danger and as a result, construction accidents happen every day.
