Common Work Related Injuries

As you can imagine, workers in building and construction are prone to several work-related injuries and illnesses. The nature of working in construction is often dangerous.

Some of the potential hazards include:

  • Falling from heights
  • Scaffold collapsing
  • Electric shock
  • Improper use of equipment
  • Repetitive motion injuries

Construction workers that work on ladders and scaffolding are commonly at risk of falling. These structures are often not erected or used properly. When there are proper safety features in place, these accidents can often be avoided.

Many of the tools that construction workers use involve electricity. Electrocution can be another hazard when equipment is not maintained or when it is misused. Other types of accidents can occur, too, from equipment not being handled or used properly.

Finally, some jobs require the same repetitive motion to be used. This can cause injury over time, such as carpal tunnel syndrome.
