Most Common Types of Construction Site Accident
FALLS FROM HEIGHT- The most common type of accident is when workers fall off unsecured ladders or scaffolding. These type of falls can result in broken bones, fractures, back or neck injuries or even death.
Falling Objects, waste items or spare parts are often transferred between tiers of scaffolding and as a result, workers may find themselves being struck by them. Items can be dropped onto you from above without any warning, giving you little time to get out the way. Injuries can vary from minor cuts and bruises to more serious head and brain injuries.
Slips, trips and falls are very common accidents in any workplace. And the construction site is no different. Workers can easily find themselves tripping over loose cables or even falling into holes in the ground that have been dug and not signed correctly. Defective equipment can also cause injury.
Excessive site and tool noise raises a huge cause for long term problems. Tinnitus can develop over time (ringing of the ears) if you’re exposed to deafening noise for too long without the correct Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).The employer has a duty to check and monitor noise and where possible, reduce it and the length of time exposed to it. Vibration from power tools can also prove to have serious effects on health. It can cause nerve and tendon damage to the hands, arms and wrists which can be extremely uncomfortable. It can sometimes result in total loss of grip too.
There are numerous regulations put in place to protect workers and anyone who visits a construction site.
