Construction Site Accident
Construction sites present numerous safety hazards. A construction site is a dynamic environment where the workers are literally building their workplace as they go. This constantly changing work environment produces unsafe situations without warning resulting in frequent and serious injuries. The fluid nature of construction sites requires extensive safety precautions and strict adherence to safety rules.
A good example of a construction accident caused by the failure to use safe practices is a case which involved what should have been an inconsequential fall. An East Texas construction worker on a high rise building slipped and fell from one floor to the next and would have sustained no more than superficial bruises. However, the employees of a Tyler subcontractor had left exposed steel rebar standing erect on the floor below. Furthermore, neither the subcontractor nor the general contractor had required safety end caps to be placed on the exposed rebar. Rather than receiving superficial bruises the worker that fell from the floor above was impaled on the rebar and died.
