Types of Equipment Accidents at Los Angeles Job Sites
Workers most likely to be injured or killed while on the job include construction site workers such as crane operators, laborers, plumbers, electricians, carpenters, pavers, and truck drivers, factory workers who operate, clean, adjust, repair, and maintain heavy machines as well as those who work in the oil and gas extraction industry.
Human error can be a factor in such accidents but they may also be the result of:
- Faulty, poorly designed, or inadequately maintained equipment
- Safety violations
- Inadequate training
- Inadequate supervision
- Unsafe construction or job site design
Accidents can involve being struck by powered equipment, vehicles, and flying objects, getting caught in machinery, struck or crushed from collapsing structures, electrocution, exposure to toxic chemicals, and more.
These accidents can lead to broken bones, spinal cord injuries, burns, amputations, serious cuts, soft tissue trauma, and other injuries that may require months or years of medical care.
