What are the most common construction site dangers?

If you are regularly employed at New York construction sites and you've never been injured, consider yourself extremely lucky. Construction workers have some of the most dangerous jobs in the world. These professions have a very high injury and death rate compared to other jobs.

Ladder safety: A necessary precaution at construction sites

Using ladders safely must be a priority for anyone who is working with one. Without everyone following the proper safety procedures, there is a chance that a worker will suffer an injury that can't be easily overcome. In fact, falls are the top cause of construction worker deaths. You can see why this has to be on the top of the list of safety protocols and precautions.

Construction worker killed when window crushed him

In March, a 34-year-old construction worker was killed at a work site in Jamaica, Queens. The site is one that is known to have had safety violations in the past, including 37 open violations that were issued by the Environmental Control Board.

Falling objects can lead to fatal accidents

Falls are one of the biggest hazards that construction workers face, but it isn't always the worker falling that it is the problem. Objects that workers use when they are at heights above ground level can easily cause a fatality if the object is heavy enough and is dropped from a considerable distance.

Don't ever do this when working with a scaffold

Construction workers in New York who regularly use a scaffold as a part of their jobs rarely consider how dangerous scaffolds are until after they suffer an injury. As such, it's vital to remind workers on a regular basis that these devices, although incredibly convenient and useful, require attention and care when using them if workers want to stay safe.

Contracting companies have not yet started to use safety tech

The dangers of being a construction worker are infinite, but every year new safety technologies are emerging to help contractors keep their employees safe at job sites. Some contractors have even started to use drones to improve worker safety. However, most of the latest safety tech like drones have yet to be adopted by construction firms.
