Construction Accidents Archives

Report shows how supervisors help establish safety culture

A new report from Dodge Data & Analytics shows that construction contractors are becoming more focused on job site safety and that they are looking to their supervisors and job site workers to promote safety. Residents of New Jersey should know that contractors singled out four factors as being essential to a safety program; all four relate to supervisors or job site workers.

Best practices for safety at a construction site

Accidents at construction sites can be a major problem for both employees and companies. Incidents can lead to serious injury and even death at all types of locations. Throughout the history of construction, many best practices for safety have been developed. It's important for both workers and their employers to consider all the ways they can mitigate risks on the job site. When everyone is aware and involved, the chance of accidents occurring will go down.

Construction sites: the top five safety hazards

Construction workers in New Jersey should be familiar with the top safety hazards in their industry. Though construction workers make up 6 percent of the U.S. population, construction injuries account for 20 percent of all injuries among private sector employees. The following are the top five causes of construction site accidents.

Another request to postpone crane rule

Construction workers i may be interested to know that on June 20, 2017, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration issued a proposal to postpone the enforcement date of its crane operator certification mandate to Nov. 10, 2018. OSHA also requested an extension to the same date for the existing requirement for employers to make sure that crane operators are able to safely operate equipment.

Workplace injuries and nail guns

Construction workers in New Jersey face many workplace hazards on a daily basis. One of the most common types of accidents that occur in construction sites are those involving nail guns. Nail gun injuries may be very serious, and some of these accidents result in deaths each year.

Fatalities among road construction employees

Employees who build and repair streets, highways and bridges are at risk of being killed in work zones because of construction accidents. Road workers in New Jersey are no exception to this and might want to know how often fatalities occur in their line of employment.

According to the Occupational Safety & Health Administration, during 2013, 294 workers within the construction industry succumbed to fatal fall injuries. The agency estimates that thousands of construction workers are injured each year in fall accidents making falls the number one safety threat for construction workers.
