Preventing on-the-job injuries on construction sites

Construction is a type of job that can come with certain risks for the men and women employed in this field. Despite the chance of on-the-job injuries that comes with working in construction, a California worker still has the right to a workplace that is reasonably free from avoidable hazards and preventable accidents. One of the most common reasons for injuries to construction workers is falls from heights.

Falls are quite prevalent on construction sites, and employers should strive to implement certain measures to reduce this type of accident as much as possible. A majority of safety violations on construction sites relate to falls and the misuse of fall protection equipment. There are many ways that employers can lower the chance of these incidents, starting with sufficient planning for jobs. Careful planning includes knowing what type of work will be required and what type of safety equipment is necessary.

Additionally, employers should provide construction workers with the tools necessary to do their jobs completely and with as little risk as possible. The provision and use of safety equipment is an important step in lowering the number of falls in the construction industry. Finally, California employers should get workers the right training so they can be as safe as possible and use equipment in the right way.

After an accident on a construction site, a worker has the right to seek benefits through a workers' compensation claim. On-the-job injuries can be expensive, and a worker may need an extensive time to recover before returning to work, particularly after a serious incident like a fall. Through this type of insurance claim, injured construction workers can get the support and rehabilitation benefits they deserve.
