The construction industry is one of the country’s biggest employment sectors – and it also an industry which can be dangerous and where workers may often face on-the-job injuries and accidents.

Accidents at construction sites are often sudden – and can range from mild injuries to leaving workers seriously injured and often unable to work for an extended period of time.

Construction accidents can be the result of a number of hazards, and can affect both workers and those who are even just near a construction site. Common causes of construction site accidents include falling hazards and debris falling on workers/those passing by the site; scaffolding problems; construction vehicle accidents and unsafe work sites. Whatever the cause, construction accidents can often result in long-term health consequences, often leading to high medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering – sometimes permanently affecting a worker’s ability to earn a living.
