Illinois construction workers are employed in one of the most dangerous industries that there is. It’s not uncommon for construction workers to sell for at least one injury throughout their career. In fact, construction workers tend to suffer four common types of injuries while on the job.
Since most construction site accidents are a result of falls, it’s not uncommon for broken bones to develop. Broken bones can happen due to a variety of different reasons. Apart from falls, the crushing of heavy machinery or the falling of an object can both lead to this type of an in.
When on the job, it’s not uncommon for construction workers to be near electrical circuits. Unfortunately, sometimes the circuits can still be live while the employees are working. This can lead to electrical burns of the body ranging from mild to fatal.
Vision or hearing loss
Unfortunately, many construction workers suffer a complete loss of some of their senses. Hearing is a very common sense that construction workers lose over time as they’re exposed to constant noise from tools and equipment every day. When it comes to vision loss, there are many hazards on the job site that can be dangerous if blown into the eyes. For these reasons, it’s important that construction site workers always have proper eye and hearing protection to protect their senses.
Frostbite or heat stroke
Construction workers are often working outdoors. This puts their body in a position to develop a weather-related injury such as frostbite or heat stroke when the temperatures are extreme. It’s important for all workers to dress appropriately when working outside to avoid these life-threatening conditions.
