construction accidents Archives

Setting up a ladder properly

If you work on ladders frequently, you may already think that you know how to set them up properly. Perhaps you do, but a little refresher never hurts. Ladder falls are one of the main reasons for serious work site accidents, and they often happen because people rush through the setup and create an unsafe workplace.

Workers face risks as it grows colder

As we move into the colder half of the year, with the late fall and winter months fast approaching, it is important to note that construction workers -- and all those who work outside -- face some increased risks. Working in falling temperatures can lead to injury.

Tips to help prevent a dangerous trench collapse

Few things are more frightening for construction workers than getting caught in a trench collapse. It's a very sudden accident, it can absolutely be fatal and it may be difficult or even impossible for workers on the surface to render assistance after the collapse takes place.

Backing up is dangerous at a construction site

Using pickup trucks, dump trucks and other types of heavy machinery is something you cannot always avoid on a construction site. As helpful as these vehicles are, they also pose some fairly significant threats to workers -- especially when they are backing up.

Vehicle, machinery operators need to take care when backing up

One of the most dangerous elements of working on a construction site is being around vehicles and machinery that are backing up. Those in charge of construction sites have a responsibility to ensure that workers who are operating these vehicles and machinery exercise caution when putting their equipment in reverse. All workers should also be trained to take care when working around moving vehicles.

Driver facing multiple charges in death of construction worker

People who work in road crews doing construction on interstates and tollways around Chicago have some of the most dangerous jobs there are. Aside from the usual dangers involved in working in any construction area, they face the threat of distracted, impaired and just plain reckless motorists.

Electrocutions on construction sites are often preventable

Electrocutions are the third most common reason for construction worker deaths -- accounting for 10 percent of them. Many are the result of live wires around and above construction sites. As with most on-the-job injuries and fatalities, they're often preventable with training, planning and proper equipment.

Winter brings additional injury risks for construction workers

While construction work slows down here in Illinois during our brutal winters, it doesn't come to a halt. Some projects still have to move forward. However, employers need to take some additional precautions to protect their employees from extreme cold, strong freezing winds and icy conditions.
