Construction Workers' Accidents Archives

Fatal construction injury was preventable -- companies cited

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration and the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health outline specific guidelines for working in confined spaces. Without the proper safety precautions, a fatal construction injury could occur. When that happens, Cal/OSHA comes in, conducts an investigation and determines whether any citations against one or more companies are appropriate.

Today's hot topic: Heat and construction injury claims

As California moves into summer, the concern over heat-related illnesses take center stage. Employers are required to provide workers with the means to prevent such illnesses, but sometimes it just is not enough. However, employers might be able to spare many employees from getting overheated and also lower the number of construction injury claims related thereto.

Constructing an injury claim after an accident

California construction companies are required to ensure the safety of their workers. They must provide the appropriate safety equipment and training for the job workers perform. Despite the safety of the work environment, accidents can and do happen. Most employees know about workers' compensation, but when it comes to filing an injury claim, they might not know how to get the benefits they need.

Construction accidents: Worker loses life following mudslide

Mother nature can often complicate the best of plans. In some cases, weather events and conditions can create dangerous road conditions, including an increased risk of mudslides. While crews attempt to clean up these conditions, they could become involved in construction accidents. For example, crews in California are currently investigating a recent incident that killed one worker and left another injured.

Construction accidents: Woman killed after struck by backhoe

Many people in California may not realize the dangers that those in construction face. However, construction accidents can happen due to the large equipment being used, falls of employees working in scaffolds or injuries suffered by falling objects. Unfortunately, one out-of-state woman recently lost her life in a workplace accident at a construction site.

Construction accidents often prove fatal

Most people would agree that police officers and firefighters have dangerous jobs. However, many people in California may be unaware of the fact that those who work in construction also face significant workplace dangers. Unfortunately, construction accidents not only cause serious injuries but often prove fatal. For example, one man in another state recently died due to a workplace accident.

Construction accidents: Wind may have caused scaffolding collapse

When most people in California consider dangerous occupations, they often think of police officers and firefighters whose jobs require them to rush toward danger.

Unfortunately, one person was seriously injured in a recent workplace accident in another state.

Construction accidents: Man killed in trench collapse

Many jobs in California can lead to worker injuries or even death. Those who work in construction, for example, face harm from a variety of different construction accidents, including collapsing walls, falling from heights, being hit by heavy machinery and other potential dangers. In fact, reports indicate that a young man recently passed away as a result of a trench collapse in another state.

Construction accidents: Man dies following fall

There are a variety of different risks associated with all occupations. However, construction accidents in California can often happen unexpectedly, with tragic results. Unfortunately, the family of an out-of-state man are likely still in shock over the news of his unexpected death due to an accident at a construction site.

Construction accidents: Police investigate fatal incident

It may be surprising for some people in California to realize the dangers that those who work in the field of construction face.
