  • Medical expenses

Common Types of Construction Accidents

According to the United States Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety & Health Administration, the four most common and serious construction accidents, often referred to as the “Fatal Four”, include:

  • Falls
  • Struck-By
  • Caught-In/Between
  • Electrocutions

Unfortunately, these types of accidents are known to cause the most deaths, but other accidents can occur on construction sites as well. Others include:

Types of Injuries Resulting from Construction Site Accidents

Each worker has the right to perform their duties in an environment free of hazards and safety risks. When businesses fail to provide safe setting for their employees, accidents can occur and may result in:

  • Blindness
  • Lacerations
  • Amputation
  • Dismemberments
  • Head injuries
  • Fractured bones
  • Scarring

For this reason, it is of the utmost importance for business owners, managers, and employers to maintain safe premises at construction sites at all times.

Employer Responsibilities to Maintain Safe Construction Site Premises

The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 was created to provide men and women with safe work environments. The OSH Act set up strict health and safety standards and enacted training programs to ensure the safety of employees across the country. When an employee is injured on the job, the contractor is held liable because he or she is responsible for the safety of the employees.
