Chicago Construction Accident Attorneys
Preventing Injuries in Job Site Accidents
The construction industry is one of the most dangerous industries in the world. Although the machinery and skeleton of buildings can be marvelling, there are numerous dangerous risks involved. Workers on the ground are subject to having things fall on them, and workers who are several stories high are at risk for falling off.
Although the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has numerous health and safety standards in place intended to keep workers safe, many of the regulations are ignored, and the majority of construction accidents are preventable.
