Preventing the fatal 4 injuries on construction sites

Working on a construction site can be very dangerous, even if you take the most effective safety measures. You never know when an accident will happen. Even the safest of sites can experience an accident that results in serious injury or even death. Here are some tips for preventing the fatal four injuries as named by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) at your construction site in Pasadena.

One of the most dangerous accidents that can occur on a construction site involves electricity. Electrocution can do quite a bit of damage to your entire body. It can also be deadly if not handled properly. All electrical hazards should be marked with the proper signs so that employees know to either avoid them or work carefully when near them.

Construction site falls are quite common in California. Employees can fall from scaffolding, equipment, out of windows and more. To prevent falls, you should remove all tripping hazards from around your work area, mark dangerous areas on the ground, cover all holes, add guard rails and more.

Getting caught in a piece of equipment or crushed in-between equipment and the building is another common construction site accident. This can cause serious injuries and even death. You need to be on the lookout when working with heavy equipment and always watch your step.

Construction workers can also suffer fatal injuries if they are struck by falling items or struck by equipment. You need to be extra vigilant when on site so you are not hit by machinery or falling objects.

When you lose a loved one due to wrongful death, it's smart to proceed legally with an experienced personal injury attorney. The courts in California can be difficult to navigate.
