Workers' Comp for Construction Workers

Were You Injured on the Job in Atlanta?

Construction workers have very physically demanding jobs that usually require them to enter into many different potentially dangerous situations.

For example, constructions sites often have:

  • Heavy machinery;
  • Difficult-to-maneuver vehicles;
  • Hazardous materials;
  • Exposed electrical wiring; and
  • Other potential safety hazards.

Because of these hazards, construction workers are required to obtain special training and wear protective gear so they can keep themselves safe from such threats. Construction site owners and operators are also required to follow certain rules in order to ensure safety. Unfortunately, however, construction accidents can occur no matter how careful a worker might be.

Leading Causes of Work-Related Fatalities

Per OSHA, 17.6% of work-related fatalities occurred in the field of construction in 2011.

The 4 top causes of work-related fatalities in the construction industry:

  • Falls
  • Electrocution
  • Getting struck by an object
  • Getting caught in or in-between objects

Who Is Considered to be in the Construction Industry?

There are many situations in which another party might be responsible for a construction worker's injury. In addition to construction workers who work on construction sites, other types of workers who are considered to be part of the construction industry include the following:

  • Painters
  • Electricians
  • Roofers
  • Carpenters
