Last week's post discussed a tragic incident in which a wall collapsed, killing one Arizona worker and seriously injuring another. These sorts of incidents are unfortunately common at construction sites, and employers need to take extra precautions to prevent them.
Other common types of construction accidents involve falls. Construction workers often carry their equipment and supplies up to very high places to work on tall objects like bridges or new buildings. Other work zones have workers in a hole or a trench. In these types of cases, Phoenix workers can easily slip and fall great distances. Moreover, a heavy object can also drop on to workers doing labor below.
