Millions of people work at thousands of construction sites across the nations on any given day. The fatal injury rate for the construction industry is higher than the national average in many countries.
The construction workers are often inadequately trained to handle the construction activities and associated hazards leading to the increase in the chances of injuries.
Potential hazards for workers in construction include:
- Fall from heights
- Trench collapse
- Scaffold collapse
- Electric shock and arc flash/arc blast
- Failure to use proper personal protective equipment
- Repetitive motion injuries
