The construction industry in Arizona appears to be in good shape; especially considering how the housing market has rebounded and the commercial construction market is mirroring the success experienced in southern California. With the number of construction projects expected to increase, it is important for contractors and workers alike to observe safety rules regarding scaffolds.
With all the inherent dangers that come with construction sites, it is surprising how easy it is for workers to be injured in falls. Workers should know that a fall from merely six feet above ground could cause serious injuries. Additionally, for every foot higher that a worker is in the air, the greater the chance for that a serious injury may occur.
