The Dangers of Construction Sites
When a construction worker makes a simple error, it may result in disastrous harm for the people around them, leading to years of expensive recovery and care. There are many different causes, but some stand out more than others. Our injury law firm helps construction workers across Long Island, New York deal with these injuries and get them the compensation they deserve. Here are some dangers to expect on a construction site and help to avoid a work accident.
Lack of Proper Warning Signs
Construction sites are required to post warning signs alerting passers-by of the dangers. If there are not sufficient signs, accidents can result. These warning signs are also reminders to all the workers, too.
To help keep pedestrians safe when passing by a construction site, barricades must be posted. The absence of these barriers allows for more accidents. People may accidentally wander onto a construction site and hurt themselves. Or if the barriers aren’t far enough away from the worksite, then accidents can also result. And lastly, the mere presence of a pedestrian may impact a worksite and lead to a lapse.
It is important that all equipment is properly maintained and inspected. Otherwise, malfunctions or other issues can arise. And malfunctions with equipment leads to more workplace accidents. Serious injuries can occur. So be safe and keep the equipment in top shape.
Falling debris and tools are a major cause of injury on construction sites. If tools and equipment up high aren’t secured, they can cause disabling injury and even death. We have all been near a construction site and wondered what would happen if something fell. Well, keep those tools secure and those issues fall by the wayside.
