Construction Workers' Accidents Archives

When a building subcontractor causes a construction accident

Construction professionals recognize the safety measures that need to be taken in order to protect themselves on the job. They know that their own employer is required to adhere to regulations and safety guidelines, and there's a reasonable expectation that they will be kept safe while they work each day. However, what happens when an independent subcontractor working on site is negligent and causes an accident that results in injury?

OSHA holds Colorado employers responsible for fall protection

Coloradans who work in construction and other forms of heavy industry may be interested to know that the U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety & Health Administration offers employers specific suggestions on preventing fall incidents. Noting that construction workers die because of falls on a yearly basis, the agency identifies a number of training-based and practical work procedures that should be employed to minimize workplace risk.

The dangers associated with construction zones on roadways

Whenever work zones are implemented on Colorado roadways, the alteration to traffic conditions from lane changes and signs can be dangerous to both motorists and employees who are repairing and building the road. New procedures established by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health seek to prevent construction-related fatalities and injuries.

Why is the construction industry so dangerous?

Due to the nature of the work that must be completed, the construction industry is inherently dangerous. Men and women who work at construction sites are routinely exposed to hazardous working conditions that put them at risk of suffering injuries related to falls, machinery and structural collapses.
