What are the common causes of construction accidents?

Construction work sites are often filled with safety hazards. If you are a construction worker in North Carolina, you should be aware of these hazards so you can stay safe at work. If you are an employer, then knowing the risks enables you to make a safer workplace for your employees. Construct Connect explains there are some areas that get a lot of attention because they usually cause fatal accidents, but there are other common issues that lead to regular injuries even though they may not be fatal. Knowing about all hazards is important, so here is a look at some of the less talked about issues.

A prevalent hazard on construction sites is nails. They get stepped on or you scrape yourself with them. While it may not seem like a major issue, such injuries could lead to infections and illness. This is a similar issue with other construction materials that may cause minor injuries that could lead to something more severe.

Another problem is moving your body in a way that causes injury. This could mean anything from lifting something wrong and pulling a back muscle to overextending your arm when reaching and straining your shoulder.

You may not hear a lot about these hazards since a lot of focus is put on the fatal four construction hazards, but that does not make them any less important. They may not usually cause serious injury, but any injury is a problem. This information is for education and is not legal advice.
