If you are in the construction industry, you have heard of OSHAs fatal four, the top four ways workers get killed in construction incidents:
Those are just the top four ways construction workers get killed. Those numbers do not include all the nonfatal injuries.
Tools can slip and cause punctures, lacerations, and amputations. Commonly, construction workers get hurt in vehicle accidents. This can include regular passenger vehicles and trucks as well as tractors, bobcats, and other related vehicles.
Often, a worker’s position and motion can cause them to get repetitive stress injuries. Signs and symptoms of RSIs often do not develop quickly, but over long periods of time.
If a construction company does not provide their workers with the proper training and equipment, then they should be held liable for any injuries or illnesses that happen.
Companies should provide current safety training, which includes training for all equipment and machinery a worker will be asked to use during a job. An improperly trained construction worker is a danger to themselves and their coworkers.
Companies should also provide all safety gear for the jobs they as their employees to do. This includes proper clothing, headgear, eyewear, and footwear.
They should also provide proper respiratory equipment when they ask their employees to work around chemicals or dust. All too often, we see cases in which construction workers develop serious illnesses because they inhale toxic chemicals or fumes during their career.
There is no reason for a construction worker to be financially on the line for injuries and illnesses that are caused by their employers not providing them the proper training and gear.
