Construction sites pose many dangers to workers and others in the area, workers often must lift heavy objects, operate heavy equipment, and perform difficult job duties at elevated heights. Still, proper protocol and safety practices can decrease a worker’s or passerby’s risk of being injured. It is also the duty of contractors to ensure that warnings are issued in hazardous areas.
When someone causes a preventable construction accident through negligence, he or she may be liable for the victim’s injuries. For example, a supervisor at a construction site is responsible for enforcing safety measures. Employers of construction workers must properly train their employees.
