Shockingly, more than 68 percent of OSHA construction safety inspections find violations. Most are minor, however even small infractions can cause serious injuries.

Construction Site Accidents: Who IS Responsible?

Written By Eva Brindisi Pearlman | July 22, 2016

 

It is well known that construction work is one of the most dangerous jobs in the country. Everyday a construction worker reports for work, they put their life at risk. In fact, one in ten construction workers are injured every year. These construction accidents, more often than not, result in serious injuries, if not, death. The worst part is, these construction accidents and injuries are preventable. So why do they keep happening?

 

Generally, contractors and subcontractors control the safety of the work site. Most of these companies are both diligent and conscientious about protecting the safety of their workers. However, the sad fact is there are still too many contractors that, oftentimes, try to cut corners by ignoring basic safety regulations that put construction workers at risk.

 

Construction safety should always be a top priority on any construction site.
