3 Most Common Construction Site Injuries
Construction is one of the most dangerous industries to work in, but injuries/accidents can be avoided. Workers should stress safety in the workplace to avoid construction related injuries and accidents.
Here are 3 of the most common construction site injuries that can be avoided:
Burns are one of the most common construction site injuries. Fires and explosions are likely to occur on construction sites due to items that pose potential risks for fires. It is important for construction workers to handle these items properly because they could endanger nearby workers and citizens.
2. Head Injuries
Head injuries are also commonly suffered on construction sites due to falling objects. These injuries can include concussions and brain injuries. It is important that all construction workers wear the appropriate protective gear such as helmets, to avoid these types of injuries.
3. Broken, fractured, or crushed bones
Broken, fractured, or crushed bones are some of the most common construction site injuries due to heavy machinery. Machinery such as bulldozers and cranes could hit or crush a nearby worker if not operated correctly.
