Construction Workers' Accidents Archives

Long-term dangers of construction work

Hazards in the construction industry take many forms. Safety education often focuses on sudden, catastrophic accidents - such as falls, explosions, trench collapses and vehicle accidents. However, another category of injuries takes place over time. Long-term damage to the body is common in construction work. Because these injuries don't arise from a single tragic event, but rather develop slowly over years or decades of work, they're more likely to go overlooked. Nonetheless, they can have a big impact on sufferers' lives.

Why safety training is so critical for construction workers

The existence of OSHA regulations isn't the only reason that construction companies need to adhere to rigorous safety training standards. When it comes to reducing risks on the job, the best strategies aren't always obvious. It's up to employers to teach their workers the right ways to protect themselves and others. More than just another regulatory hoop to jump through, safety training is a matter of life and death for countless construction professionals.

Construction site auto crash injuries at least 1 worker

Often the most dangerous aspects of a job are not the work itself but rather the environment in which the work takes place. The construction industry is one example of this. These workers must often do their jobs in relatively unsecured locations such as other people's property or along Pennsylvania's busy roadways.
