Construction Crush Injuries: An Unavoidable Job Hazard?

To avoid placing yourself between a heavy object and the ground is to follow a basic human instinct. But construction workers routinely make their living by putting themselves in dangerous situations. They must rely on their coworkers and reliable equipment to escape unscathed. Sadly, accidents do occur.

Worker Dies In Governors Island Construction Accident

A 55-year-old man was recently killed in a construction project on Governors Island. The construction worker was helping to rebuild sections of a sea wall, when a pipe fell 15 feet and landed on him.

Unsafe Construction Sites Cause Construction Accidents

Many Construction Accidents can be prevented if property owners, contractors, subcontrators follow the law and provide protection for the men and women who work at these dangerous jobs.  The NYC Department of Buildings just completed a survey with the following statistics only 55% of the construction sites were in compliance with existing rules and regulations.  33% of the job sites were out of compliance and 12% of the sites were so far out of compliance that the work  site had to be closed down.  Construction workers who are injured on the job are losing income and their health unnecessarily.  People working at a height without protection or on inadequate scaffolding will suffer serious injuries including fractures and head injuries;  improperly secured equipment can cause permanent injuries to workers.
