Are You Safe on Constructions Sites?

There has been an increase in claims for work related injuries with Building Trade Workers from 2002 to 2007. The number of claims for injuries suffered on the job site in 2002 totaled 15,206 while the number of claims for injuries suffered on the job site in 2007 totaled 24,889. This represents a 64 percent increase in claims from the year 2002 to the year 2007. With more and more claims being filed because of workers suffering injuries it leads to projects slowing down and profits being lost. Fatalities on construction sites across the country have varied from year to year and accidents continue to happen each day because workers do not practice safety precautions or construction sites do not employ the proper safety standards on a day to day basis. Many construction accidents that occur involve collapsing buildings or collapsing cranes, especially in New York. Two major crane accidents occurred in the year 2008 that claimed the lives of multiple people and injured many others either working on the site or passing by.

Many construction companies offer safety programs prior to working on a new job site so that employees are properly educated when it comes to staying safe while on the job and knowing the signs of an unsafe area. These programs include routine safety quizzes, risk assessment competitions, presentations on road safety awareness and other classes help employees remain safe when they arrive to their job site.
