Working in construction sites can be one of the most dangerous jobs there is. You are six times more likely to be killed or injured in this type of work. This job can also cause a wide range of accidents.

So it is required for employers to brief and orient their employers about the proper health and safety measures they need to follow. Equipments should also be inspected regularly to check if they are still safe to use or are still in good condition.

The usual causes of accidents in a construction site consist of falling debris, structural, roof or scaffolding collapses. Because of the nature of their job, the workers often have to work on high places. Wearing of safety harness and the use of ladders should be done in the proper way. Electrocution, explosions and the wrong use of cranes and forklift trucks are also some of the hazards in a construction site.

Back injuries are also common especially when they need to lift heavy things. If a worker is not trained properly on how to lift heavy things, a workplace accident claim may be possible.
