Hazards Of Construction
Every construction site has the same basic hazards that everyone must be wary of when they are near one. These hazards include:
- Falling objects: Tools and building materials not properly secured can fall, and even a fall of just two-stories can cause serious injuries if it strikes someone.
- Vehicle collisions: The size of a construction site does not have to be vast to require large vehicles like backhoes and dump trucks, and collisions with them are devastating.
- Hazardous materials: Construction involves removing hazardous materials such as asbestos, lead or mold. Even if you are outside the site, there is a risk of exposure.
For the safety of the community, there are limits to public construction site access, but that is not a perfect safeguard, and injuries caused by construction are common.
Everyone, including children, bystanders and undocumented immigrants, is entitled to basic safety in the community. The builders and owners of construction sites have a responsibility to maintain proper safety protocols. If you are suffering because of their negligence on this basic need, we can help you.
