As regular readers of our Jonesboro Workers' Compensation Law Blog know, construction is one of the most dangerous lines of work in the nation. Construction worker injuries can be caused by falls from heights, collapsed scaffolding, electrical shocks, trench collapses, repetitive motions and much more.
It is the time of year when you are most likely to see road crews working to repair Jonesboro streets and the highways and interstates in our area. There are a number of safety concerns for those road construction workers, including the risks of being injured by the machinery they use on a daily basis.
It is critical for construction companies to take proper measures to protect their workers from safety hazards. This includes electrical dangers.
There are always a lot of safety hazards at a construction site. Some of them could be the risk of falls from scaffolding, the risk of getting hit by transportation vehicles or getting hit by objects flying from aside or above.
