In the United States, a construction site is statistically one of the most dangerous places for an American worker to be on the job every day. The U.S. Bureau of Statistics reports that one in 10 American construction workers will suffer an injury because of construction site safety violations every year. Scaffolding accidents, falling materials, trench wall collapses and construction vehicle accidents can cause devastating injuries that can permanently affect the construction worker and family members, as well as bring financial ruin to your project or company.
The tragedy of many of the injuries is that taking common precautions to improve construction site safety isn’t necessarily expensive or time consuming for property owners or construction company employers. Understanding where the work site safety problems lie hidden can be an important way to reduce injuries to construction workers on the job.
