Injuries From Falls/Falling Objects

The most common type of accident on a construction site is one involving a fall or being struck by a falling object. Given the fact that construction almost always involves working at heights, workers are exposed to the risks of either falling themselves or being struck by an object falling from above them.

Common situations that can lead to fall or falling object injuries include:

  • Working on ladders
  • Working on scaffolding
  • Working on higher floors
  • Working near or in a trench

Injuries From Falls

Even with all of the safety precautions workers are supposed to take, such as the use of safety harnesses, construction workers still suffer injuries from falls at a high rate. These accidents can create devastating injuries such as:

  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
  • Spinal cord injuries (paraplegia, quadriplegia)
  • Broken bones
  • Internal injuries

Injuries From Falling Objects

Workers often have heavy tools and materials at heights on a construction site. Cranes, ladders and scaffolding can contribute to the risk created by having so much material at heights where if it fell, it could seriously injure or kill someone.
