Scaffolding Accident Causes & Consequences
Construction workers face hazardous conditions every day to the type of work they perform. Add to this the performance of work at considerable heights above the ground where the risk of falls is significant.
Scaffolding accidents, such as falls, can cause a variety of injuries sustained due to:
- Incorrectly constructed scaffolds
- Being struck by falling objects
- Improper safety training
- Failure to use safety equipment, such as harnesses
Such accidents can result in fractures, brain injuries, spinal injuries, sprains, severe lacerations, and more. Such injuries, if not fatal, can result in months or even years of disability requiring extensive medical treatment. Injured workers face the loss of earning capacity, huge medical costs, and other financial hardships. OSHA maintains that such accidents can be reduced with full employer compliance to OSHA safety standards.
