COMMON TYPES OF ON THE JOB AND WORKPLACE INJURY ACCIDENTS
Hazards exist in almost all kinds of jobs. Researchers have highlighted the risk to one’s health of sitting too much every day. Therefore, even lack of activity can constitute its own risk to workers.
On the other hand, certain types of jobs — such as construction work — require activities that often lead to accidental injuries and have been shown to result in more frequent and more severe types of injuries. Common construction site accidents include:
- Scaffolding and ladder accidents
- Sidewalk bridge accidents
- Construction elevator accidents
- Crane and forklift accidents
- Electrical shock injuries and injuries caused by fires and explosions
- Roadwork errors
- Cutting and saw accidents
- Welding accidents, steamfitter accidents, and nail gun accidents
- Injuries caused by falling buildings or by being struck by falling debris
- Accidents due to poor site maintenance or faulty equipment
- Weather-related accidents
