Posted in and tagged by Ken Wilhelm

There are many different types of hazards that put construction workers at risk of suffering serious or even fatal injuries. A worker may get hurt if a trench or scaffold collapses. Falling debris, large machinery, heavy loads or cranes can crush workers as well. Construction workers are often hurt in accidents involving any number of factors including, but not limited to, falls, cranes, power tools, live power lines, adverse weather conditions, inadequate supervision, improper safety gear and inexperienced contractors, etc.
