Construction Workers' Accidents Archives

2 injured, 1 killed after being shocked in construction accident

Although there are numerous scenarios in which the safety of construction workers in Colorado and elsewhere could be placed in harm's way, one of the most common incidents in a similar field pertains to electrical hazards. Workers who operate near electrical lines must proceed with caution, as the threat of electrocution or shock remains ever present. Two workers were injured and another was killed in a recent construction accident involving similar circumstances.

Hazardous equipment: Incident involving excavator kills 1

A recent accident at the construction site of a casino has reportedly claimed the life of a 56-year-old man who was operating an excavator. Accidents involving hazardous equipment are far too common, and even with the necessary safety procedures in place, preventing every incident could prove difficult at best. Each of these incidents also has the unfortunate chance of causing serious harm to a construction worker in Colorado, or worse.

1 struck and killed by metal beam in construction accident

Even while wearing the proper safety gear, construction workers in Colorado and elsewhere may face numerous potential hazards while on the job. Falling objects are a significant concern for many workers, and a hard hat may do little to protect them against being struck by heavy materials. A 25-year-old man was killed in a recent construction accident after he was struck by a metal beam that fell from 18 feet above.

With large machines and heavy materials all around, construction workers in Colorado and elsewhere may face a variety of potential risks every day. A significant portion of construction-related incidents involve workers who are struck by equipment, and these accidents unfortunately run a high risk of ending in catastrophe. A man was recently killed in a construction accident in another state after he was reportedly struck by a heavy piece of equipment.

Falling objects: Reinforcing bar falls from 15th story, injures 2

Two construction workers were recently transported to the hospital after they were struck by reinforcing bars that reportedly fell from 15 stories above. Falling objects are a major concern on many job sites, and companies in Colorado and elsewhere generally seek to prevent such incidents by taking measures to ensure all equipment is properly secured. Should a heavy load come loose from the floors above, the safety of all workers below could be placed at risk in the process.

1 killed in construction accident after forklift overturns

Heavy duty machines such as forklifts may be a common sight on many job sites in Colorado and elsewhere. These machines are used to lift and transport a variety of materials, and the heavier a load, the less stable a forklift might become. Should such a machine become unstable, nearby workers could be placed at risk in the process. A 46-year-old man was killed in a recent construction accident after a forklift reportedly overturned and pinned him against another vehicle.

Fatal construction accident caused by trench collapse

Working around unstable ground is a concern for many construction workers in Colorado and across the nation. When a job-site requires the use of a trench, ensuring the proper precautions are taken is a must, as failing to do so could result in a catastrophic accident. A man has died following a recent construction accident during which he reportedly became entrapped in a trench that wasn't properly shored.

Street sweeper injures 2 during recent construction accident

For construction workers in Colorado who perform job-related tasks on the side of the road, the danger of an accident is ever-present. All it takes is one moment of inattention on the part of a driver, and the health and safety of a worker could be placed in jeopardy. Two men were hospitalized in a recent construction accident when they were thrown into a trench after the driver of a street sweeper failed to notice a nearby hose.

3 injured in construction accident after scaffolding collapses

For individuals in Colorado and across the nation who operate in the construction industry, using scaffolding to work at heights might be an everyday occurrence. While these mechanisms make certain duties significantly less difficult to perform, should a malfunction occur, the health of workers can be placed at significant risk. Three individuals have suffered injuries in a construction accident that took place under similar circumstances in another state.

Man dies after being struck by beam in a construction accident

Many construction companies in Colorado and elsewhere place a high priority on maintaining a safe environment for workers to operate in. Companies may also provide safety training and equipment for employees in an effort to reduce the odds that an accident will occur. Unfortunately, preventing every construction accident could prove a difficult task, and those involving heavy falling objects can be devastating.
