If you work in the construction industry, you should never lose sight of the fact that you could be part of an accident at some point. When this is in the back of your mind, there’s a better chance that you’ll do whatever it takes to remain safe at all times.
Construction site accidents often occur when people stop paying attention to what they’re doing. Unfortunately, even if you’re paying close attention to the task at hand, a mistake by another worker could result in serious injury or death.
Here are some of the top causes of construction injuries:
If you are part of a construction site accident, stay where you are until help arrives. Also, inform your supervisor as to what went wrong, so he or she can create the necessary report.
If your medical team suggests that you avoid strenuous activity while you recover, you may be able to file a claim for workers’ compensation benefits. The money you receive while you recover can help you remain financially stable until you are able to return to work.
