Common Causes of Construction Accidents

We Know Construction Accident Causes
The nature of the work at construction sites means that accidents can happen at any time and without warning. Some of the most common causes of these accidents include:
- Unsafe Working Areas
It can be difficult to follow all safety protocols, so some construction companies cut corners on safety to save time and money—which may lead to serious injuries.
- Fall Hazards
Many construction sites require workers to be high off the ground. If they aren’t secured while working at high elevations, they might fall and suffer severe or even fatal injuries.
- Equipment Failure or Misuse
Building equipment—such as saws, cranes, and forklifts—at construction sites can be dangerous if operated without proper safety gear and training.
- Lifting and Straining
Construction crew workers are required to pick up and move heavy objects on a frequent basis, and if proper lifting techniques aren’t communicated to the crew, they may suffer debilitating back and neck injuries.
