California construction workers are exposed to various types of risks every time they report to a job site. Although they are employed in an inherently dangerous line of work, that does not mean that they are precluded from a work environment that is as safe as possible. Proper safety equipment and training should be provided in order to prevent on-the-job injury for construction workers.
Injuries on construction sites are often caused by falls, scaffolding collapses, falling equipment, debris, trench collapses, forklift accidents, electrical accidents, exposure to toxic chemicals and more. It is also important not to underestimate how dangerous conditions can be for construction workers when the temperatures begin to rise in the spring and summer. Whether it is from a work accident, heat-related illness or toxic chemical exposure, injured and sick workers have rights.
