Types of Construction Accidents

Houston is a bustling city with thousands of homes, schools and work facilitates. What makes the infrastructure of Houston possible is many construction workers who work countless hours to build and repair our city. Working in construction can be a dangerous task. The risk of injury is high, particularly because construction workers are exposed to a wide array of situations. Injuries can happen as a result of doing jobs high off the ground or using heavy machinery and power tools. Other co mmon accidents include:

  1. Building collapse accidents
  2. Crane accidents
  3. Forklift accidents
  4. Heavy machinery accidents
  5. Falls from ladders and scaffolding.

The types of injuries that can be experienced as a result these accidents can range from minor to very serious and can even include death. The pain and suffering, lost wages and medical expenses that a construction worker and his or her family can incur can be massive. We need construction workers to keep our city growing and to keep our city safe. Yet, it's also vital that we keep the men and women who work in construction safe from harm.
