Falls at construction sites are usually preventable

Construction is a dangerous job, but employer policies and unsafe working conditions can increase the risk that workers face. The single biggest risk to construction workers in terms of fatal workplace accidents is the risk of a fall. It makes sense, given that workers are often out on the sides of buildings or on the roof of a structure not yet enclosed. Workers can also fall while working on or installing elevator shafts.

Man's death believed to be result of workplace accident

Depending on what type of job a person in California has, he or she may perform the same tasks repeatedly throughout the workday. Despite the repetition of these tasks, those that involve the use of heavy machinery, for example, hold the risk of injury. In fact, the recent death of a man in another state is believed to have been the result of a workplace accident.

While all occupations hold some degree of risk of injury, certain jobs hold an even greater risk. For example, those who are required to work at great heights or with machinery could suffer serious injuries if involved in an accident.
