Construction work is dangerous by nature as workers are required to complete their jobs in small spaces, hazardous heights, and with the use of very powerful machinery. Construction workers are at risk for serious injury if they are not properly trained and not made aware of the possible dangers of their work space. It is an employer’s responsibility to provide workers with a reasonably safe working environment. This responsibility includes providing adequate training for workers, providing safe equipment, warning employers of possible work hazards, and providing workers with the equipment that they need to safely complete their work.
Formal inspections and safety programs help to monitor the safety of construction sites, but it is the employer’s responsibility to maintain the safety of the sites. Unfortunately, negligent employers fail to maintain safety standards, leading to the injury of hundreds of construction workers each year.
