2 Construction workers escape serious workplace injuries

Near misses in the construction injury can cause psychological trauma to workers. In some cases, workers are lucky to survive an incident and suffer only non-life-threatening workplace injuries; however, the physical and psychological effects can still be long-lasting. The California Division of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration is investigating an incident at a construction site that could have resulted in fatalities or severe bodily harm.

Workplace injuries cause death of construction worker

Whenever workers are involved in renovating old buildings, there are multiple safety hazards to consider, especially when there is asbestos abatement to be done. When such a project is tackled in California, the owner of the construction company and the project managers have an enormous responsibility to assess all aspects of the project to identify potential hazards and address them appropriately. Workplace injuries and fatalities may be avoided if all safety regulations are followed.
