construction workers' accidents Archives

Trenches can pose major safety hazards to workers

Many construction sites in both New City and the surrounding suburban and urban areas of greater New York City will have trenches. This is because workers often have to excavate in order to access underground utilities, lay foundation and do other important tasks.

Cranes, crane operators must follow safety standards

A previous post on this blog talked about a serious crane accident that left several people either dead or severely injured. This accident was just the latest in a string of accidents, most of which affected construction workers in and around the cranes.

Falls take a heavy toll on construction workers

According to an analysis of statistics available through a government agency and other sources, construction workers in the Manhattan area, including Orange, Rockland, and Westchester Counties, as well as the Bronx, are at a high risk of getting hurt because of a fall.

Road construction workers' accidents can lead to civil lawsuits

A lot of the road construction work that is done on New York Highways is scheduled for the early morning hours when traffic is light and also to limit delays for motorists. Unfortunately, some of those who do travel at that time are on their way home from pubs, clubs and other facilities where they consumed alcohol. This increases the probability of road construction workers' accidents that could cause severe injuries and even fatalities.
