Construction accidents can be caused by a variety of things, such as:
- Mechanical failure
- Unsafe working conditions
- Hazardous materials
- Conscious violation of safety codes and standards
It is the duty and obligation of a local Phoenix worksite to ensure the safety of all its employees. For example, the site should:
- Follow OSHA (Occupation Safety & Health Administration) regulations and requirements in order to prevent any injuries that occur from any falling accidents, including serious falls from varying heights or scaffoldings.
- Require mechanics to examine whether or not a machine meets all safety codes and regulations of the State.
- Make operators of the machine intermittently check to determine if maintenance is required to avoid any machinery-related injuries and accidents, including crane or forklift accidents.
- Ensure that all construction workers who work on the electrical aspect of a construction site are experienced and trained so explosions and other electrical accidents do not occur.
