According to recent national statistics released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) a wide range of accidents often occur, resulting in serious injuries even death to workers.
While some of the risks are inherent in the line of work, many of them can be minimized or eliminated altogether.

Causes Of Construction Accidents
While construction workers have a right to be provided with a safe working environment, accidents occur for a variety of reasons, including:
Falls on construction sites are quite common and account for about 22 percent of all injuries. Workers are at risk of falling from roofs, ladders, scaffolding and other heights.
Tools, equipment and construction materials that are being used above a worker, and are not properly secured, can strike an individual and cause serious brain and spinal injuries, even if a worker is wearing a hardhat.
Construction workers are often exposed to wires and faulty connections, hence making electrocutions quite frequent amoung construction sites. With the common occurance of electrocutions in the construction industry, this amounts to 10 percent of workplace deaths.
Machinery and other equipment, such as cranes, forklifts, dumpsters and nail guns are the source of many injuries to workers.
Fires and Explosions
Hazardous conditions can arise from exposed wiring, leaking pipes, and flammable chemicals, causing fires and explosions that lead to serious or even fatal injuries.
Trench and Building Collapses
Construction workers are often required to dig trenches that can cave-in. Similarly, buildings that are being demolished or constructed can unexpectedly collapse, killing or seriously injuring workers.
Medical Conditions Caused By Construction Accidents
Even with careful actions and proper safety training, workers may still suffer injuries on a construction site leading to a wide range of medical conditions such as broken bones or fractures, amputation of fingers, toes and other limbs, infections and lacerations from exposed nails, tools and machinery, eye injuries, loss of vision, loss of hearing, and even head or brain injuries from falls or falling objects.
